Scientists taught drones to extract electricity from the air

Scientists have developed a technology that will allow drones to extract electricity directly from the air. This innovative idea has the potential to revolutionize the way unmanned aerial vehicles are powered, opening up new opportunities for their use in various fields.

The basis of the new technology is the use of drones with special sensors and materials capable of capturing energy from the atmospheric electric field. This field is formed due to the potential difference between the earth and the atmosphere, which occurs as a result of natural processes such as thunderstorms and other meteorological phenomena. Harvesting energy from this field can provide drones with the necessary electricity without the need for traditional power sources such as batteries or solar cells.

The development of this technology includes the use of materials with high electrical conductivity and efficient energy storage that can store and convert received electricity for use by drones. Scientists note that one of the key advantages of this approach is its environmental friendliness and the ability to provide drones with energy even in remote and hard-to-reach areas.

The potential of the new technology can be realized in various industries. For example, self-powered drones can significantly increase the effectiveness of search and rescue operations, environmental surveillance, infrastructure monitoring, and even agriculture. Unmanned aerial vehicles will be able to work longer and at greater distances, without the need for frequent replacement of batteries or recharging.
