Business alliance between ROBOTIX JAPAN Co., Ltd. and ABILITY Co., Ltd. begins development of innovative drones using hydrogen fuel battery. ROBOTIX JAPAN Co., Ltd.(Headquarters: Sakatoh City, Ibaraki Prefecture; Representative Director: Hiroyuki Sasaki) and ABILITY Inc. (Headquarters: Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture; Representative Director: Masahiro Fujimoto) have signed a business alliance agreement. Through this alliance, ROBOTIX JAPAN will develop drones that use hydrogen fuel cells developed by ABILITY Co., Ltd. and will be able to offer higher performance and more environmentally friendly products.
Advantages of the innovative drones by using hydrogen fuel cells
- One of the main advantages of drones using hydrogen fuel cells is that they can operate for longer periods of time than battery-powered drones. Combined with light weight along with high energy density and short charging time, it is an environmentally friendly technology and therefore is considered to be extremely important in the future development of the drone industry.
- In agriculture, batteries have a very short operating time, so it is necessary to bring a lot of bulky batteries and generators to work, and since they are no longer needed, they work much more smoothly.
- Even in the event of a disaster, drones powered by hydrogen fuel cells can fly for long periods of time.
- By applying hydrogen fuel cells to drones, it will be possible to provide more efficient and environmentally friendly services, which will also lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions. This helps to protect the global environment and is an important point for industries to carry out socially responsible business develo
