Smart Charging for Continuous Operation of Drones
Drones are the most commonly employed nowadays in various applications such as surveillance, defense, security, etc. and they replace human beings in sensitive (remote) areas. Drones can be used continuously for tracking and locating people and objects. Automatic battery charging is a challenge for maintaining continuous operation of a drone. Basically, two types of drones viz. main drone, which functions in normal condition and an auxiliary drone, which functions whenever the charge of the main drone is less than the safe voltage are proposed in this article. Due to the employment of these two types of drones, continuous data transfer is possible without any interruption in operating station. Human efforts are reduced to a greater extent since the work proposed in this article takes care of automatic charging of drones and ensures the continuous and reliable operation.
