(FR) SYSTÈME DE RAMASSAGE ET DE LIVRAISON PAR VÉHICULES AÉRIENS SANS PILOTE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods include UAVs that serve to assist carrier personnel by reducing the physical demands of the transportation and delivery process. A UAV (100) generally includes a UAV chassis (110) including an upper portion, a plurality of propulsion members (102) configured to provide lift to the UAV chassis, and a parcel carrier (200) configured for being selectively coupled to and removed from the UAV chassis. UAV support mechanisms are utilized to load and unload parcel carriers to the UAV chassis, and the UAV lands on and takes off from the UAV support mechanism to deliver parcels to a serviceable point. The UAV includes computing entities that interface with different systems and computing entities to send and receive various types of information.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés comprenant des UAV qui servent à assister le personnel d'un transporteur en réduisant les exigences physiques imposées par le processus de transport et de livraison. Un UAV comprend généralement un châssis d'UAV comprenant une partie supérieure, une pluralité d'éléments de propulsion conçus pour fournir une portance au châssis d'UAV, et un support de colis conçu pour être sélectivement accouplé au châssis de l'UAV et retiré de celui-ci. Des mécanismes de support d'UAV sont utilisés pour charger des supports de colis sur le châssis de l'UAV et les décharger dudit châssis, et l'UAV atterrit sur le mécanisme de support d'UAV et décolle de ce dernier pour distribuer des colis à un point de service. L'UAV comprend des entités informatiques qui établissent une interface avec différents systèmes et entités informatiques pour envoyer et recevoir divers types d'informations.
