Japan plans to develop guidelines for Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Tokyo - according to sources, the Japanese government plans to develop guidelines for Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in fiscal 2020 according to different uses, reflecting the need to formulate rules that would otherwise instigate not to prevent accidents due to the interference of floats and fuel tank partitions, because the private sector is expected to use such vehicles

Underwater Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, also known as unmanned submarines, are used to inspect offshore wind power plants and underwater pipelines. Vehicles with electric motors move under preset procedures, collect data and send it to the mother ship and base station through communication using light or sound waves. Underwater Unmanned aerial vehicles are also used to collect data on the seabed and its geological characteristics. There is also a remote control model

in Japan, entities such as Kawasaki Heavy Industry Co., Ltd., IHI company and government research institutions are developing underwater UAVs, using their proprietary technology developed through the development of submarines. Mainstream models are 2 to 3 meters long. Some models can dive to a depth of several thousand meters

underwater research is usually carried out by divers or sunken equipment connected to cables. It is estimated that using underwater unmanned aerial vehicles can reduce the inspection cost of underwater pipelines to one third

according to the data of the Ministry of land, infrastructure, transport and tourism, the underwater UAV market is expected to reach about $1.2 billion (S $1.6 billion) in 2023, higher than about $200million in 2010

however, if the use of underwater drones increases, such as collisions with ships and underwater facilities, or drones disappear on the seabed, trouble is expected. In order to deal with this situation, the Ministry of infrastructure plans to formulate guidelines for accident prevention measures and deal with them in case of accidents

for example, the guidelines will require manufacturers to install mechanisms to avoid collisions and collect drones after the battery runs out. In order to meet this demand, Guo Yanling's team has also developed a variety of composite 3D printing materials such as stone sculptures, jade sculptures, pottery sculptures and so on. Manufacturers should equip UAVs with some functions, such as stopping operation when other vehicles approach and rising to the water when the battery power is below a certain level

the civil aviation law prohibits aerial drones from flying in airports and densely populated residential areas without permission, which can be used for aerial photos and other purposes. The need to formulate rules for Underwater Unmanned aerial vehicles has become a similar problem to be solved, because there are few regulations on where to use them and so on
