Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR REDUCING ENERGY CONSUMED BY DRONES DURING FLIGHT
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE RÉDUIRE L'ÉNERGIE CONSOMMÉE PAR DES DRONES EN COURS DE VOL
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatus for reducing energy consumed by drones during flight are disclosed. A drone includes a housing, a motor, and a route manager to generate a route for a flight of the drone based on wind data. The wind data includes turbine-generated wind data provided by turbines that detect airflows received at the turbines. The turbines are located in an area within which a segment of the flight of the drone is to occur. The route is to be followed by the drone during the flight to reduce energy consumed by the drone during the flight.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil permettant de réduire l'énergie consommée par des drones en cours de vol. Un drone comprend un boîtier, un moteur et un gestionnaire d'itinéraires servant à générer un itinéraire pour un vol du drone en fonction de données se rapportant au vent. Les données se rapportant au vent comprennent des données se rapportant au vent que génère une turbine fournies par des turbines qui détectent des flux d'air reçus au niveau des turbines. Les turbines sont situées dans une zone à l'intérieur de laquelle un segment du vol du drone doit se produire. L'itinéraire doit être suivi par le drone en cours de vol pour réduire l'énergie consommée par le drone en cours de vol.
