Inventec had three patents in robotics during Q4 2023. The patent describes a system for charging and replacing air-land unmanned aerial vehicles during flight. When a UAV’s battery power is low, it sends a signal to an unmanned ground vehicle which guides it to a power supply vehicle for charging. Another UAV is then activated to continue patrol, improving sustainability and synergy of the vehicles.

Application: Charging and patrol replacement system for air-land unmanned aerial vehicles and method thereof (Patent ID: US20230322119A1)

The patent filed by Inventec Corp. describes a charging and patrol replacement system for air-land unmanned aerial vehicles, where a flying unmanned aerial vehicle continuously monitors its battery power and, when low, signals an unmanned ground vehicle for guidance to a power supply vehicle for charging. The system also involves synchronizing patrol data between the returning aerial vehicle and an activated one to ensure seamless patrol operations, enhancing the sustainability and synergy of the unmanned vehicles.

The system comprises multiple unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with detection, transceiver, navigation, and synchronization modules, along with an unmanned ground vehicle with control and transmission modules. The ground vehicle selects and activates aerial vehicles, guides them to the charging station, and synchronizes patrol data between returning and activated aerial vehicles. Additionally, backup power-supply vehicles are deployed in patrol areas to provide charging support if the primary system fails to transmit the power supply vehicle's coordinates promptly. The charging module can be a wireless charging platform or a magnetic charging component, ensuring efficient and reliable charging for the aerial vehicles. Overall, the system and method described in the patent aim to optimize the operation of air-land unmanned vehicles by facilitating seamless charging and patrol replacement processes.
