Abstract

In recent years, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technologies are developing rapidly. Drone, one type of the UAVs, is used in many industrial fields, such as photography, delivery and agriculture. However, the commercial drone can flying only about 20 minutes at one charge. Furthermore, the drone prohibits flying at the limited area, and it also can’t work in bad weather. Due to the development of drone technologies, we must reduce energy consumption, and realize high range movement. In order to solve these limitations, we develop a new type of drone, which has the function of flight and vehicle can move less power consumption. It extends high range of mobility to drone. Moreover, it can be used to pass through the limitation area or bad weather condition by sliding.
