Development of a Battery Management & Charging System for Autonomous UAVs

The objective of this project is to create a novel battery charging and management solution for a fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for long term deployments. A contact charging-equipped base station has been designed from scratch, and a custom battery pack for UAV systems has been built to work with this system. This project will impact projects involving long-term missions for UAVs, because it minimizes the downtime for individual systems due to battery constraints. Future work includes optimizing battery charge levels to lengthen lifetime use and minimize maintenance requirements.
