Guest Keynote: The challenge to an Air Mobility Revolution ~Development of Japanese Made Flying Cars and Cargo Drones~

As a new trend in the field of mobility, the development of flying cars is progressing around the world. SkyDrive's flying car, which completed a public manned flight test in August 2020, has been developed by combining Japan's first and most advanced technologies.
