U. Illinois at Chicago announces new drone research project

Researchers at University of Illinois at Chicago are, though partnership with the U.S. Army, developing a new power supply system that will allow drones to recharge wirelessly from vehicles on the ground. The research initiative, a four-year $8 million partnership announced earlier this month, will focus on creating new systems to recharge drone swarms as efficiently as possible. The proposed technology will enable small battery-powered drones to autonomously return from military missions to unmanned ground vehicles for recharging through wireless power transfer technologies.
