LAS VEGAS & CYPRESS, Calif.-Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. today announced the launch of the full suite of its AnyMile™ drone-based logistics and operations management platform. Drone operators, corporate shippers, and transportation and logistics companies can now tap into AnyMile’s comprehensive feature set that provides access to shipment, fleet and service management applications, enabling operators to profitably accelerate and scale operations while reducing their carbon footprint. An Alpha version of AnyMile was announced at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
In addition, the new AnyMile Manufacturer Portal enables drone manufacturers to promote their vehicles to prospective buyers that are expanding or maintaining their fleet operations. They can educate potential buyers about various vehicles with marketing collateral, performance and warranty information, usage instructions, maintenance schedules and procedures, and more. Financing options may be made available on the platform.
“As the industry continues its rapid growth, management of drones, terminals, routes and every other aspect of operations will become increasingly more complex, which speaks to the need for an all‑encompassing logistics operations management platform like AnyMile,” said Zafer Sahinoglu, vice president and general manager of Mitsubishi Electric Innovation Center (MELIC). “AnyMile aligns with Mitsubishi Electric’s mission to achieve truly global and interconnected sustainable smart society, while decreasing our carbon footprint.”
According to Allied Markets Research, the drone industry is expected to reach a valuation of $52.32 billion by 2031, due to a growing demand for time-efficient deliveries, including last-mile.
AnyMile supports all known categories of drones – multi-rotor, fixed-wing, single-rotor or fixed-wing hybrid VTOL, and eVTOL – to provide an end-to-end resource planning and management system. The platform is integrated with an Uncrewed Traffic Management System (UTM) from OneSky for the safe and efficient operations of drones, in low-altitude airspace. Additional AnyMile features include the ability to schedule cargo pick up at a specific location, tracking delivery to multiple destinations; live maps; set up of terminal and station locations; management of drone maintenance tasks; and performance of routine operational tasks, such as generating customer invoices, key performance indicators (KPIs), booking services for drones including refueling, servicing and much more.
An interactive demo of AnyMile will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 9 – 12, 2024 in Mitsubishi Electric’s booth #3541 in the West Hall.
Additional partnership announcements will occur throughout 2024. For additional information, visit ces.mitsubishielectric.com.
