Wireless Power For Aerial Robots

The goal of this project, 'Wi-Fly', was to demonstrate the feasibility of wirelessly transferring power to a UAV enabling it to hover indefinitely.

Power is transferred wirelessly using magnetically coupled resonators and then high frequency AC is conditioned to DC for the quadcopter. I modeled and fabricated the wireless power transfer system, assisted building the power conditioning system and quadcopter, and designed and built the Design Day demos.
