A drone built by a Nagoya-based company has completed a trial run to see if unmanned aircraft can be used to transport goods from Kagawa Prefecture to an island in the Seto Inland Sea.

"In the long run, we would like to use drones to transport emergency medical supplies and daily items. This can reduce the inconvenience of living on an isolated island," said one of the sponsors who plan to start a related business next spring.
