Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR VEHICLE-BASED DRONE CHARGING
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL DE CHARGE DE DRONE BASÉE SUR UN VÉHICULE
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatus for vehicle-based drone charging are disclosed herein. A vehicle-based drone charging apparatus includes a charging device to be operatively coupled to a vehicle. The charging device is to charge a drone in response to the drone being operatively coupled to the charging device. The vehicle-based drone charging apparatus further includes a communication interface to be operatively coupled to the vehicle. The communication interface is to broadcast use information associated with the charging device. The use information includes location information associated with a location of the vehicle and fee information associated with a cost for use of the charging device.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil de charge de drone basée sur un véhicule. L'appareil de charge de drone basée sur un véhicule comprend un dispositif de charge destiné à être couplé fonctionnellement à un véhicule. Le dispositif de charge est destiné à charger un drone en réponse au couplage fonctionnel du drone au dispositif de charge. L'appareil de charge de drone basée sur un véhicule comprend en outre une interface de communication destinée à être couplée fonctionnellement au véhicule. L'interface de communication sert à diffuser des informations d'utilisation associées au dispositif de charge. Les informations d'utilisation comprennent des informations d'emplacement associées à l'emplacement du véhicule et des informations de frais associés au coût d'utilisation du dispositif de charge.
