Vertically Aligned Electrodes May Improve Battery Charging Times by 500%
The linchpin of eVTOL transportation’s commercial success (read “profitability”) fundamentally lies within that lowercase “e”– the electric part of the acronym. But, one of the challenges eVTOL developers and manufacturers face is their ability to quickly and efficiently keep their lithium-ion powered vehicles sufficiently charged to keep them aloft. The Challenge of Keeping eVTOLs Charged…
MIT Scientists Built Insect-Sized Drones
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s an insect-sized drone, just two inches long!
For Whom the Bell Tolls – It Might Soon Toll for Your UAVs
Commercial drone operations may begin as early as 2025. It remains to be seen whether there will be air tolls for unmanned aerial vehicles.
NOAA Drops an Area-I Altius 600 Drone Into the Eye of Hurricane Ian
Uncrewed aircraft can be dropped into hurricanes to better understand how these massive, disruptive weather conditions develop and evolve. Researchers can use that information to better protect life and property.
For Urban Air Mobility, A Picture May Be Worth Billions of Words
Researchers believe presenting storyboards of different UAM scenarios will help professionals charged with launching UAM.
For AAM, Vertical May Not Just Be for Take Off, It Could Be Good for Electrode Alignment Too
Vertically aligned electrodes may improve battery charging times by 500 percent.
