Title
(EN) UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE WITH PROPELLER PROTECTION AND HIGH IMPACT SURVIVABILITY
(FR) VÉHICULE AÉRIEN SANS PILOTE À PROTECTION D'HÉLICE ET CAPACITÉ DE SURVIE AUX IMPACTS ÉLEVÉE
Abstract
(EN)
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) includes a body that supports breakaway components. One component is a battery pack which powers the vehicle. Two other components are pod assemblies, which each include at least one motor and one propeller. Each motor is supported within a support ring using spokes or filament. The spokes keep the motor firmly stable during operation and also effectively encage the otherwise dangerous spinning propeller. This allows the vehicle to operate with a higher level of safety than conventional UAVs. The breakaway feature can be established using magnets.
(FR)
Véhicule aérien sans pilote (UAV) comprenant un corps qui supporte des composants de rupture. Un composant est un bloc-batterie qui alimente le véhicule. Deux autres composants sont des ensembles fuseaux, qui comprennent chacun au moins un moteur et une hélice. Chaque moteur est supporté dans un anneau de support à l'aide de rayons ou d'un filament. Les rayons maintiennent le moteur de manière solidement stable pendant le fonctionnement et renferment également efficacement l'hélice en rotation autrement dangereuse. Cela permet au véhicule de fonctionner avec un niveau de sécurité plus élevé que les UAV classiques. L'élément de rupture peut être établi à l'aide d'aimants.
