Drones are also called the Industrial Revolution in the sky, and are rapidly becoming widespread in society. The scenes of their utilization are not limited to simple aerial photography, but also pesticide spraying, civil engineering surveys, and equipment inspections such as solar panels. Service markets such as these are already being formed, and are expected to be used for public purposes such as disaster surveys in the future.
Under such circumstances, we held this workshop and received a great deal of interest from a large number of local governments.
