The YMR-08 is a remote-operated industrial-use drone developed primarily for airborne agricultural pest control. To answer the needs of small or suburban farms, it features a lightweight carbon fiber fuselage and eight rotors powered by an electric motor for quieter operation than a conventional engine.

The MOTOROiD concept model aims to demonstrate personal mobility in which the rider resonates harmoniously with the machine. Equipped with high-precision balance control via artificial intelligence and autonomous technology, the MOTOROiD can sense its own state and adjust its center of gravity accordingly to stand up off its kickstand and remain upright unassisted. It can also recognize its owner and move forward to meet him/her, as well as react based on its rider's actions thanks to its human-machine interface (HMI). These, among several other functions, allow MOTOROiD to behave like a true partner of its owner. MOTOROiD inspires a vision of future mobility that takes vehicles beyond simple "tools for movement."
