At Aero Team Eindhoven our mission is to facilitate high-priority package delivery using drones. We do this by creating a network of highways in the sky between important logistical points, where drones are allowed to fly.
Imagine a drone, flying over a highway in our network. When its battery runs out, it can signal to our system that it needs a refuel. At that moment a much more mobile drone will launch from the closest fuelling station in the network, towards the cargo drone. It will interlock in mid-air and swap the empty battery to a full one. Enabling this cargo drone to fly endlessly.
This way packages can get delivered quicker, over a greater distance and yet in a sustainable way!
