Researchers from Imperial College London announced last week that they created a drone which does not have to land to recharge. The wireless charging technology opens numerous opportunities for wider use of drones. It indicates that in the future the machines can receive power while flying and thus fly almost infinitely – landing only for maintenance purposes. The technology uses inductive coping, concept known for over 100 years, but not yet fully used. The project is in the early stage, but is still being developed and improved. Wireless charging system is hoped to transform the industry and enable a wide range of innovative, and novel applications of drone technology.
