MIT Researchers’ UAS Recharges Batteries by Perching on Power Lines

Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) have developed a lightweight unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can perch on a power line like a bird. This opens up the possibility for UAVs to recharge their batteries using the magnetic fields emitted by power lines. The CSAIL team’s single-motor glider has a complex control […]
