The hottest Japan is catching up with China in for

  • Detail

Japan closely follows China in formulating UAV standards

the Japanese government will promote the commercialization of UAVs. In the summer of 2018, drones will be allowed to transport goods in outlying islands and mountainous areas, and the Ministry of land, transport and communications of Japan will also discuss the full lifting of the ban on drone cargo transport in urban areas after 2020. In principle, Japan restricts drones from flying outside the scope of human vision, but enterprises have a huge demand for drones in terms of cargo distribution, infrastructure management and measurement. At present, China and France are leading in the formulation of UAV standards, while Japan and the United States are catching up

in 2015, a drone fell into the prime minister's residence in Japan, and the government formulated basic guidelines on flight methods and areas in the same year. If the state permits, in principle, the UAV can be released within the range of human sight and within one year

at the beginning, the illegal use of unmanned aerial vehicles was concerned, but the technological development continued to advance. In order to expand the use out of sight, the call for easing restrictions was increasingly strengthened. In the face of serious labor shortage, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are considered to play a great role in cargo transportation and remote monitoring. It may also become a means to improve the production efficiency of enterprises

the Japanese government will first fly out of sight of the lifting of the ban on outlying islands and mountains, believing that this will help accelerate the commercial use of UAVs. The government will revise the licensing and approval standards based on the aviation law. Enterprises and individuals using drones are required to limit the flight place and ensure safety through the position, height and speed of drones

unmanned aerial vehicles are not allowed to fly on the head, and it is stipulated that they must avoid collision with aircraft, trees and people. In addition, it is also planned to require the setting of landing bases for handing over goods, etc. Due to the risk of goods falling, the government will also formulate rules to prevent falling and overloading

the Ministry of land and transportation of Japan will begin to discuss the possibility of flying UAVs in urban areas in 2018. In urban centers, UAVs need to avoid collisions with poles and buildings that only measure the lower yield stiffness. Therefore, the development of a model certification system and operator qualification system for flying UAVs will be discussed. In addition, it also saves 20% - 40% of the cost for customers on average. We will discuss whether drones infringe on personal portrait rights and land ownership

the international competition around the commercialization of unmanned aerial vehicles is becoming increasingly fierce. China and France are considered to be in the lead in setting standards for out of line of sight flight of unmanned aerial vehicles. According to the Mitsubishi comprehensive research institute, China limits the non vacuum insulation board that allows flight outside the line of sight to "less than 4kg body weight" for man-machine with high tightening strength. This seems to be becoming the driving force for DJI, China's largest UAV enterprise, to control 70% of the global civil UAV share

US President trump issued a presidential decree in October 2017 to relax the restrictions on drones. Although the United States previously banned flying out of sight and at night in principle, it allowed local governments to relax the rules. The reason why the United States has relaxed restrictions is not only the appeal of Amazon and other enterprises, but also intended to fight China. At the seminar of the Ministry of land and transportation of Japan, some experts pointed out that "the United States was slow before, but under the trump regime, the commercialization of (unmanned aerial vehicles) may make rapid progress"

if progress is made in flying out of sight, business opportunities will expand in Japan. Japan Post and e-commerce enterprises Lotte are promoting the validation test and test flight of UAVs, and Fujitsu and others are promoting the discussion to ensure sufficient time to control the use of UAVs for information sharing in disasters. The demand of local governments in Japan is also high, and there are voices looking forward to using drones for infrastructure management such as bridges and transmission lines. It is planned to take high-precision images from the sky to improve the efficiency of maintenance and inspection
