Skycart develops the world's first cargo drone that can transport 4 parcels at the same time
According to an article published on the usavision website on May 20, 2021, Skycart announced that it is developing the world's first cargo drone that can perform multiple delivery tasks at the same time, and can deliver four packages at once through an autonomous cloud network. The multi-package self-balancing technology applied by the company makes the Nimbus drone the most advanced cargo drone on the market, which can reduce transportation costs by 30% and reduce the occupation of air routes by 75%.
Through iterative design, Nimbus ensures its aerodynamic efficiency and achieves faster speeds with lower emissions. Unlike other UAVs, the front of Nimbus adopts a canard layout, which helps minimize air resistance, make the UAV fly faster, and minimize the risk of stalling. Just like a fixed-wing aircraft, Nimbus’s canards and wings can stabilize it horizontally and vertically, and generate lift.
Nimbus also has the characteristics of a rotorcraft, which can be hovered in the air by rotating the engine. Thanks to the modular design, each part of Nimbus can be replaced when there is a problem, thereby maximizing scalability and greatly reducing maintenance costs.
Nimbus’s pod is specially designed to reduce air resistance and provide safe storage space for the delivered packages. It can accommodate four packages and has a built-in rack. There is a small door at the bottom of the rack to accurately place each package. Easily complete the task of loading and unloading packages.
In addition, each Nimbus has multiple built-in cameras supported by the AI system, which can detect obstacles and complete obstacle avoidance operations to ensure their safety. Nimbus uses rechargeable batteries to provide energy. It is controlled by Skycart's UAV cloud management system Skycart Cumulus Cloud. It uses 4G cellular network for communication. When the cellular signal is lost, it switches to satellite signal communication. In addition, Nimbus also integrates redundant processors, sensors, fail-safe and emergency recovery systems.
FlyDragon cargo drone FLY-380 VTOL fixed-wing UAV
FLY-380 VTOL fixed-wing UAV15KGS payload 2-4 hours endurance MTOW 50KGS VTOL
The FLY-380 fixed-wing cargon drone platform is equipped with industrial-grade vertical take-off and landing fixed-wing flight control and navigation system, as well as professional aerial aerial survey and inspection ground station software. It can ensure that the drone can fly autonomously throughout the process, without operator intervention to complete the autonomous take-off and flight status. In the flight phase of conversion, autonomous cruise, and autonomous landing, it also supports automatic route planning for 1000 waypoints and emergency standby plan for 100 waypoints.
The drone platform has the following features and advantages:
a) Practical and efficient: it has the characteristics of fixed-wing UAV’s long flight time, fast speed, long distance and large load;
b) Vertical take-off and landing: with the take-off and landing mode of the rotorless drone, greatly reducing the requirements for landing and landing and airspace;
c) low cost of use: no complicated and bulky launching and recycling equipment, no additional recycling sensors required;
d) Simple operation: integrated special flight control and navigation system, full autonomous flight, operators only need to send flight plans, no professional training and operational experience;
e) Compact system: no complicated auxiliary equipment, simple transportation, deployment, maintenance and withdrawal.
