To operate in space, safety is a paramount challenge when it comes to drones. Drone design-ing is creating new markets and jobs, and changing social infrastructure and airspace policies.A drone has two parts: cargo (lug-gage, camera, etc) and flight (motor, propeller, arm, etc) mechanism.
Drones used for logistics, industrial and services are expected to see wide-spread adoption and use in the future. For example, an inspection drone can attach a camera to the end of a long rod that can enter a small space for inspection. Whereas, a service drone can spray liquids for fumigation or over crops while flying.
Aeronext, a tech startup seeks to overcome the safety issues and collab-orate with industries to revolutionise the sky. Aeronext’s centre of gravity control, called 4D GRAVITY technolo-gy, is for fundamental re-examination and development of the structure of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). 4D GRAVITY technology opti-mises the position of the centre of gravity based on flight parameters of the drone coordinated with its move-ment. It enables a drone to be utilised in an increased number of industrial applications.
It is characterised by a separate independent structure that physically separates flight and cargo parts within the drone and gimbals them to displace each other inde-pendently. The main theme in drone architecture that Aeronext focuses on is its control by fundamentally rede-fining the structure of the airframe in the drone.
When a drone is in tilted posi-tion, conventional airframe moves its centre of gravity, so some motors experience loads more than the others. Since an Aeronext 4D GRAVITY-equipped aircraft has separate flight and cargo structures, centre of gravity does not shift when tilted.
It stabilises the motors and aircraft, as well as improves energy efficiency. As a result, it solves the problems of wind resistance, flight time, reliability and flight speed for drones.A 4D GRAVITY-powered aircraft improves fuel efficiency by equalis-ing the load on the motors during flight. Not only can the drone perform multipurpose operations, it can also change batteries in flight.
A 4D GRAVITY-powered aircraft is more resistant to changes in the centre of gravity, side winds and updrafts in flight that cause crashes, thus providing a more stable flight. This improves safety and increases flight speed.Aeronext develops and provides solutions in the industrial robot sphere based on drones that are opti-mal for specific applications in such industry segments as logistics and inspection.
