Light and electricity is a wireless charging station for UAV based on high pole lamp.
At present, UAV has been applied in many fields, but its short endurance limits its wider use. Light and electricity provides eight charging positions for UAVs to park in the idle space of high pole lights. For UAVs that do not support wireless charging, wireless charging can be supported by external receiver accessories. As a node, light and electricity will effectively increase the use scope of UAV, so that UAV can be better used in communication, rescue, logistics and transportation and other fields.
