It seems that drones are all the talk these days. Drones are useful in climate science, space research, energy and environmental research, and surveillance to protect sensitive areas, and they show great potential for growth in technology and applications. Drone technology depends mainly on many branches of engineering, including but not limited to robotics, computer technology, avionics, air and space research, mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and others.1 When energy prices rise and the autonomy requirements increase, managing the power demand of computing devices becomes a major concern.
