Topic: Standardization for UAS Development and Traffic Management

Speaker: Prof. Yuichi Yaguchi, Senior Associate Professor, The University of Aizu, Japan


UAS is currently being implemented in society internationally and is in the process of being actively legislated in Japan for services, including unmanned aerial vehicles in a manned zone. The problem in this situation is that what kind of UAS is allowed to be used and what kind of UAS can be operated safely is a mixture of the intentions of each country and the areas of international cooperation and competition in business. For the UAS implementation worldwide, we need to create international standards that conform to the laws of many countries. In this lecture, I will explain how the UAS system is discussed in the international standard forum called ISO and how Japan is proceeding with the system design while complying with ICAO and other international standards from the standpoint of an expert from an ISO working group.


Prof. Yuichi Yaguchi received his B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Aizu in 2006, and his Ph. D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Graduate School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Aizu in 2011. In 2011, he became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Systems, Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Aizu, and in April 2022, he became a Senior Associate Professor in the same department. Currently, he is also working as executive secretary of JUTM International Standards and Echo System WG and ISO TC20/SC16 WG3, WG4,WG8 and AG6 as Japan Expert.
