Wednesday 31 July 2019 | 11:15 CET | News
Japanese operator NTT Docomo has developed an application-programming interface (API) for the Docomo sky drone-operation platform. Docomo has also used the API to integrate docomo sky with Nexsys-One's tower maintenance platform in a joint trial, demonstrating the possibility to use drones for automated inspections and maintenance of mobile-network base-station towers. Docomo aims to expand the use of drones in diverse fields, such as manufacturing, media and infrastructure, in addition to inspections of base-station towers and solar panels.
