Work cited: Grepow news — Drone Delivery
There have been some exciting announcements in the world of drone deliveries lately. The announcements come more from the FAA than from the tech companies, as there have finally been drone deliveries in the United States.
Is this the beginning of crowded skies delivering our food, drone parts and new socks, or is this just a fad? You and I know drone deliveries can be a sustainable technology, and obviously companies like Amazon, Google and USPS think the same.
The pros and cons of drone delivery are worth our attention.
What is Drone Delivery?
Delivery drones are unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that can deliver lightweight packages. Drones generally use 4-8 propellers and rechargeable batteries to provide thrust and attach packages underneath the body of the drone.
Delivery drones are operated autonomously or remotely with operators potentially overseeing multiple drones at once. Delivery drones are used for medical goods, food, retail, or even deliveries that can be difficult to achieve through more traditional vehicle-based services.
Possible benefits of drone delivery
The purpose of a delivery drone is to provide services for delivering objects or commodities rapidly and in hard-to-reach or out-of-the-way locations. They can deliver products quickly to virtually any location.
Drone delivery companies can save money on shipping costs, which would in turn reduce costs for consumers. Furthermore, a drone would not add to roadway congestion due to less vehicle miles traveled (VMT), and there would be improved safety for the driver of the vehicle.
Consumers would also receive their packages far more quickly and reliably, which would build consumer trust and encourage repeat purchasing.
Possible Limitations of drone delivery:
One of the limiting factors for drone delivery has been battery life. High-quality drones usually can stay in the air for about 30 minutes, and the longer a drone has to recharge, the less packages a fleet can deliver.
The cost of adding delivery drones to a company’s services requires a significant investment in the infrastructure of the organization. That’s why there are only a few large businesses that consider using this technology at present. The average price of a drone that can accurately make a delivery can be up to $500.
Streaming videos to headquarters would allow supervisors to know if a delivery was successfully completed. This technology could help to lessen the risk of theft in the future as well, but there are privacy concerns as drones would likely use GPS and cameras to find homes and deliver packages.
Irregular and/or unpredictable events, such as weather, wildlife, or vandalism/sabotage, could bring down a drone during a delivery, which could potentially become a safety hazard for those on the ground and/or adversely impact the reliability of drones.
Limited payloads prevent heavier or larger items from being delivered via drone, and designated drop-off locations may become difficult to determine in dense, urban areas.
These are all factors that need to be considered when operating drones for delivery.
It’s just a matter of time until drones have the potential to eliminate the challenges people face every day. Drone delivery is inevitable: when regulations loosen up and the infrastructure is in place, we should expect to see drone deliveries for a variety of purposes. Drones could enable a step change in the availability of everyday items.

COVID-19, otherwise known as the Coronavirus or 2019-nCov, has rapidly expanded around the globe, and health officials and researchers are working hard to understand and prevent the pandemic from spreading further. In order to slow the spread of the infection, many countries have taken tough containment measures, such as instilling stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders.
Some have even used UAVs to combat the pandemic: Spain, for instance, was the first European country to implement an agricultural drone to spray disinfectant in large, public areas. More recently, French company Flying Eye also used a DJI drone to do the same especially in urban spaces.
In this article, we will cover what operating personnel should pay attention to when they disinfect public areas around them.

For Operating Personnel
WHO (World Health Organization) says that COVID-19 can spread from people who already have the virus, and it “spreads primarily from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, which are expelled when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes, or speaks.” To minimize contact with others, personnel should keep at least 1 meter, or 3 feet, from each other.
While disinfecting, avoid smoking, eating, or drinking of any kind.
Personnel should protect themselves by wearing disposable clothing, such as caps and gloves. Overalls, protective goggles, work shoes, rubber or waterproof boots are recommended as well.
Personnel should wear masks while on duty. WHO also says that wearing a mask “can limit the spread of certain respiratory viral diseases, including COVID-19.” If the mask is deformed, wet or dirty in any way, it should be replaced with another one.
The Flight Area
Permission from local governmental departments should be obtained in advance so as not to violate the regulations in place.
Since disinfectants have a certain corrosiveness, clear the space that will be disinfected and move all people and animals to avoid accidents. Food and clothing that is not being worn should be put away in advance as well.
To minimize repeated spraying and leakage, plan out the flight area and path in advance.
During the flight, the pilot should always pay attention to any obstacles, keep the flight interval with obstacles at all times, and ensure the safety of flight equipment and property.
After spraying, it is necessary to clean the aircraft and the spraying system because the residual disinfectant can corrode the aircraft, metal structure, water pumps, sprinkler heads, and pipelines, which will affect the service life. Moreover, if the water pump or sprinkler head is blocked, the spray flow will not work quite as efficiently the next time it is used.
About the maintenance of drone batteries, ensure that the voltage difference is less than 0.2V, and charge the battery with a small current to balance the voltage difference. Do not discharge the battery if the voltage is abnormal. The battery should maintain about 3.85V when put into storage, and keep a regular charge-discharge maintenance every month or at least every three months.
Drones are being used more and more widely in all our lives, so the batteries that power these devices are increasingly advancing and being pushed to their limits. One of the biggest challenges to these batteries is endurance; more and more users need the power to last longer.
One such example is with an agricultural drone. Let’s say that the drone carries 10kg of pesticide with two ordinary Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries that have a capacity of 16000mAh in 6S (22.2V). This drone will only be able to last about ten minutes with these batteries, which farmers generally find to be too short. However, the use of high-voltage batteries with the same capacity and C rating can increase this flight time by 15-25%, which will increase the efficiency and operations.
We will explore why high-voltage batteries can improve flight duration and also look at the advantages of such batteries.
Without an increase in weight, high-voltage batteries provide better performance. This is key for UAVs since each drone has a specific payload that it cannot go over.
2. Higher Voltage
If we compare ordinary LiPo batteries to that of those with high voltage, we see a subtle change in voltage. Through this little voltage increase, users are able to get increased performance in their products.
Ordinary LiPo Batteries
The nominal voltage for a single LiPo cell is 3.7V. A 6S battery pack has a nominal voltage of 22.2V, and a 12S has 44.4V.
A single LiPo cell that is fully charged has 4.2V while a 6S has 25.2V and a 12S 50.4V.
High-Voltage LiPo Batteries
The nominal voltage of a single high-voltage LiPo cell is 3.8V, a 6S pack has 22.8V, and a 12S has 45.6V.
A single LiPo cell that is fully charged has 4.35V while a 6S has 26.1V and a 12S 52.2V.
3. Better Cycle Life
In the chart above, we can follow the discharge rate of several batteries. The high-voltage 4.4V batteries (shown in green) demonstrate a higher discharge rate and discharge capacity.
The above chart shows that, under the same discharge currents and cycles, the 4.4V (in blue) has a longer cycle life than the other batteries at 4.35V or 4.2V.
4. Increased Efficiency
Similar to the example offered at the beginning, we put two drones together for a simple test. Both drones carried 15kg of water with two batteries of 25C and 22000mAh in 6S.
The drone with the non-high-voltage batteries (22.2V) lasted 17 minutes and 50 seconds.
The drone with the high-voltage batteries (22.8V) lasted longer for 22 minutes and 10 seconds, lasting 4 minutes longer than the ordinary batteries.
According to the above data, the advantages of high-voltage UAV batteries are obvious.
Grepow products high-quality and high-voltage batteries under its different brands, GensAce and Tattu. We are able to custom, high-voltage cells and offer a one-stop service for your battery designs and solutions.
How to Determine Battery Performance?
Advances in battery technology have contributed greatly to the changing technological environment around us. Today, competition between different power battery technologies is at the forefront of various applications.
But at the same time, the safety of the battery has also spurred everyone’s sensitive nerves. In the first half of this year, many new energy vehicles such as Tesla, Weilai, and BYD have had many spontaneous combustion incidents.
The above shows that the performance evaluation of the battery is a comprehensive indicator system, and the most important factor in this indicator system is not the energy density, but the safety.
DENSITY or SAFETY?
According to some relevant research data, there are two main reasons for the fire alarm of the power battery.
The proportion of the internal short circuit causing the fire accident is about 35%.
The proportion of the battery fire caused by the mechanical external force such as collision is about 18 %; 16% of fire accidents are related to the charging process, especially at the end of charging and overcharging, which is more likely to cause safety problems.
With the increase of system energy density, the focus on the safety of power batteries is no longer limited to the level of the unit. “In the test phase, the safety issues that everyone cares about have transitioned from the single level to the multi-level system evaluation stage. The security at the physical level is not an absolute security concept, but a relatively safe concept.”
