Pigeon Post Smart Case Switching Modeling

Here's some research models showing how the Pigeon Post System Smart Case and Smart Coop could interact. 

Working with the Lego and magnet set up I have realised I need to redesign the smart case top/bottom to be square as the rectangle cross section adds the unneeded complication of orientation.

So what's next?  I need some input into how the UAVs and Coops will grip the Smart Case.  It will be a combination of a small neodymium disc magnet and a physical shape to grip onto.  Should it be circular or help guide the case to orient the Case with the Pigeon?

Hello,

Good idea. However you need to work still on improving a way to receive your "packages" on the base (in the video, you obviously had to systematically intervene manually to have the packages be correctly positionned on the base).

Also do you have ideas on how to pick and drop the boxes with a kind of servo or electromagnetic (on/off) controlled systems ?
