Skysense has launched a portable charging pad which enables drones to land on it before charging up the exhausted drone’s batteries automatically.
Andrea Puiatti, CEO of Skysense, said, “This solves two problems. The first, it enables you to manage the operation remotely. Second, you can have a drone that takes off at any time without human intervention to change the battery, thus enabling fully autonomous missions.”
The asking price for this charging pad would cost anywhere from $649 and $4,365, depending on what kind of goodies that are requested in the final roll out. The vast price difference would certainly translate to a whole lot of customization, don’t you think so? After all, the power tiles themselves are gold-plated where the landing area is concerned, which would certainly add up to the overall cost.
