Title (EN) UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS WITH A CUSTOMER INTERFACE SYSTEM AND METHODS OF DELIVERY UTILIZING UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTÈMES D'AÉRONEF SANS PILOTE POURVUS D'UN SYSTÈME D'INTERFACE CLIENT, ET PROCÉDÉS DE LIVRAISON UTILISANT DES SYSTÈMES D'AÉRONEF SANS PILOTE
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, systems and methods are provided to enable package delivery and interaction with customers. Some embodiments comprise unmanned aircraft system (UAS), comprising: a crane system comprising a first spool system and a crane motor, the first spool system comprises a first cord that is extended and retracted; a retractable interface system cooperated with the first cord; a package holder configured to hold a first package to be delivered by the UAS at a delivery location; a control circuit coupled with the crane motor to control the crane motor, and to activate the crane motor to extend the first cord and lower the retractable interface system while the UAS is maintained in flight at least at a threshold height; wherein the retractable interface system comprises an input interface to receive input from a customer at the delivery location.
(FR) Certains modes de réalisation concernent des systèmes et des procédés permettant la livraison de paquets et une interaction avec des clients. Certains modes de réalisation comportent un système d'aéronef sans pilote (UAS), comprenant : un système de grue comprenant un premier système de bobine et un moteur de grue, le premier système de bobine comprenant un premier cordon qui est étendu et rétracté; un système d'interface rétractable coopérant avec le premier cordon; un support de paquet configuré pour tenir un premier paquet à livrer par l'UAS à un emplacement de livraison; un circuit de commande couplé au moteur de grue pour commander le moteur de grue et pour activer le moteur de grue afin d'étendre le premier cordon et d'abaisser le système d'interface rétractable tandis que l'UAS est maintenu en vol au moins à une altitude de seuil; le système d'interface rétractable comprenant une interface d'entrée pour recevoir une entrée d'un client à l'emplacement de livraison.
