(Construction) - Tokyo-based air mobility startup SkyDrive begun development of a heavy-duty cargo drone which can deliver goods and equipment to construction sites. The firm and construction company Obayashi jointly launched testing to demonstrate the capability of the drone carrying 30kg construction materials by autonomous driving. Pre-orders have been accepted since December 2019.

“Cargo Drone” was tested in Dec., 2019

SkyDrive is developing and manufacturing electric-powered vertical takeoff and landing air crafts. The first testing of “Cargo Drone,”the UAV dedicated for transport of a heavy load was carried out in Toyota city, Aichi Prefecture last December. The 1.3m long, 1.7m wide drone successfully delivered sandbags, wooden piles and tarps. It flies autonomously for as long as 15 minutes at 40km/h for 3km at longest.
