The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the need for contactless operations. While unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are being developed to aid humans in countless domains, the need for effective battery management and performance optimization remains a huge task. The proposed solution, the “AeroDock”, aims to tackle these challenges by using wireless power transfer (WPT) technology coupled with smart monitoring of the drone's health. The performance and hardware checks are assessed at the user end via cloud computing and IoT technology. This system is contact-less, safe, reliable and its usage is not affected by external factors. Thus, the AeroDock is a smart docking station for UAVs which eliminates the need for human intervention in effective charging and maintenance.
