In 2020, in addition to giving advice on Odawara City's digitization efforts (such as proposals for the Super City concept), students from the Furuya Study Group worked on research on Odawara City's digitization. Furthermore, with a subsidy from the Environmentally Friendly Vehicle Promotion Organization, we conducted research on the practical application of drone logistics at mandarin orange farms in Odawara City. Specifically, in Ishibashi, Odawara City, Kanagawa Prefecture, we formulated a plan necessary to switch from existing logistics using automobiles on mountain roads to drone logistics. Agricultural products transported by trucks, etc. in Odawara City were replaced by drones and transported.
