The Conceptual ‘Nebo’ EV Charging Drone

The conceptual ‘Nebo’ EV charging drone is an intelligent solution for electric vehicle drivers that would enable them to enjoy enhanced driving range on long-haul trips without the need to stop for extended periods.

The system consists of an aerial drone that could be prompted by drivers when their driving range is running low to have the charging functionality summoned.

The drone would then land on top of the vehicle and stay in place using electromagnetic technology along with ultrasonic sensors to deliver power at the optimal rate.

The conceptual ‘Nebo’ EV charging drone is the design work of Junpyo Hong, Jayoung Koo, Yang Dong Wook and Dongjae Koo, and identifies what could be done to alleviate concerns surrounding range anxiety amongst electric vehicle drivers.
