Cobb, Eben C.
Multirotor autonomous helicopters (MRAH) are increasingly being used in academic, military, and commercial applications. Many of these MRAHs are limited to short autonomous flight times because the discharged batteries need to be manually exchanged frequently. The solution was to design a base station referred to as the Automated Battery Changer (ABC) that passively orients the MRAH and exchanges the discharged batteries with a new set of batteries.
