Wireless charging hotspots help UAVs achieve permanent flight

] if successful, this technology can reshape the commercial UAV industry and provide all-weather solutions in some specialized fields, such as express delivery, monitoring and security

According to foreign media reports, a company headquartered in Portland, Oregon called global energy transmission (get) is developing a wireless charging hotspot network for unmanned aerial vehicles. Using this charging technology, an electric industrial UAV can be fully charged by hovering on the electricity for only 6 minutes. After the UAV is fully charged, it can fly until the battery is almost exhausted, and then charge it again. This is repeated without landing or connecting cables

get's long-term vision includes building an infrastructure similar to a honeycomb tower. The infrastructure consists of many charging stations, which can make the UAV supporting this charging network realize permanent flight. If successful, this technology can reshape the commercial UAV industry and provide round the clock solutions in some specialized fields, such as express delivery, monitoring and security

according to the station of get company, the UAV built for this charging network weighs about 18 pounds, can carry 15 pounds, and can fly for 28 minutes after takeoff. The maximum flight speed is about 37 miles per hour. It needs to be maintained every hour of flight. The maximum transmission power in the charging phase is 12 kW

on the whole, the charging grid of pet looks like a hexagonal frame composed of poles wrapped with wires. With a diameter of 26 feet, the frame can charge multiple UAVs at the same time

at present, drones are being used to provide consumer solutions in various occasions. In addition to video and photography, these small aircraft are also used for mapping and on-site monitoring in the construction industry, search and rescue missions, and even for transporting organs between hospitals. Of course, UAV operators know that the battery life of UAV is very short - about 22 minutes in most cases - and the emergence of wireless charging network can effectively solve this problem. William R. Kallman, the American director of get and partner of Draper network, said in a recent interview that the power of their charging technology can be increased to 200 kW in the future, so that driverless taxis can become potential customers of get

in May, 2018, get announced its charging system at the AUVSI xponential exhibition held in Denver, Colorado. At the global consumer electronics show in Las Vegas in 2019, get demonstrated this charging system. ② Fill the silicone oil delivered randomly into the oil seat (or loosen the oil cup. Recommended reason: meet all standard bolts of waterproof coiled materials. Although the company's official headquarters is located in the United States, it also has a branch and Engineering Center in Moscow, Russia. The executives here, as well as most team members, are originally from Moscow and have backgrounds in physical and chemical engineering.

get air (TM) of the company The solution is currently accepting reservations. The solution will include a radio charger, a new friction ring, a 26 foot diameter charging area/electricity, and two get air (TM) industrial UAVs pre equipped with wireless charging systems. In addition, the solution can also be extended. The projet MJP 5600 has a 64 bit operating system, including the addition of an autonomous power module module that provides independent power to the charging station. The total operation and maintenance costs add up to $120000. (reviewed by Tencent technology/Lexue)
