  • Publication number: 20170283090
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward systems and methods for swapping a battery assembly between an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and an unmanned aerial vehicle ground station (UAVGS). In particular, systems and methods described herein enable a battery swapping assembly to remove a battery assembly from within the UAV and store the battery assembly within a plurality of battery banks that are linearly arranged within the UAVGS. For example, the battery arm can move along an axis of movement relative to the battery banks to conveniently transfer one or more battery assemblies between the UAV and the battery banks within the UAVGS.

  • Publication number: 20170282734
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward systems and methods for inserting and removing a battery assembly from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and/or a UAV ground station (UAVGS). For example, systems and methods described herein enable convenient installation of a battery assembly within a UAV. The battery assembly and UAV further include features that facilitate secure connection of the battery assembly within the UAV and which prevents wear due to frequent installation and removal of the battery assembly within a receiving slot of the UAV. In one or more embodiments, the battery assembly includes a housing and one or more connectors having one or more features that cause the battery assembly to self-align when the battery assembly is inserted within the receiving slot of the UAV.

  • Publication number: 20170174091
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward systems and methods for removing and replacing a battery from within an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In particular, systems and methods described herein enable a battery arm within a UAV ground station (UAVGS) to engage the UAV and a battery assembly within the UAV to unlock the battery assembly and remove the battery assembly from within the UAV. For example, the battery arm can include a latch engagement assembly that engages one or more latches on the UAV to unlock the battery assembly. Additionally, the battery arm can include a battery gripping assembly that grips an outer end of the battery assembly while retracting and removing the battery assembly from within the UAV.

  • Patent number: 9499265
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward systems and methods for autonomously landing an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In particular, systems and methods described herein enable a UAV to land within and interface with a UAV ground station (UAVGS). In particular, one or more embodiments described herein include systems and methods that enable a UAV to conveniently interface with and land within a UAV ground station (UAVGS). For example, one or more embodiments include a UAV that includes a landing base and landing frame that interfaces with a landing housing of a UAVGS.

  • Patent number: 9429953
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed toward systems and methods for enabling autonomous landing of an unmanned aerial vehicle. For example, systems and methods described herein enable autonomous landing of the unmanned aerial vehicle by providing an unmanned aerial vehicle ground station with various guidance systems for guiding the autonomous landing. In some embodiments, the guidance systems enable autonomous landing by providing one or more LEDs. In other embodiments, the guidance systems enable autonomous landing by providing various types of transmitted energy waves. In at least one embodiment, the guidance systems enable autonomous landing by providing a two-stage landing system that includes two or more types of transmitted energy.
