VAIRDO has developed a technique and automated cooling technology for Multi-Rotors using basic physics principles and construction using first principles.VAIRDO’s BIONX, powered by it’s BrainBox Technology is the world’s first self-cooled micro Drone.
Current closed electronic and mechatronic systems often suffer from overheating of electric and mechatronic components, leading to need for additional cooling elements like heat-sinks, cooling fans, liquid cooling and more components causing weight increase and/or drag to objects moving through air.
The Venturi effect creates a net flow through a pipe with an opening across which a fluid is moving, the application is very useful in cooling flying vehicles or products which encounter airflow around them in normal operation (such as fans, cars, etc.) with closed bodies which house motors, electronics and heat generating parts. If constructed correctly, a network of holes on the skin of a flying vehicle or part/product interfacing with airflow could induce airflow through the body of the vehicle, or part/product, creating a cooling effect within the closed system or part, allowing for closer-constructed electronics without requiring bulky, heavy cooling apparatus or add-ons which either increase weight or add drag to the overall system in air, not to mention increased Bill of Materials (BOM) and cost.
