DescriptionDrone's operation time depends directly on the accuracy of the battery voltage prediction. In this paper, we propose an accurate method for predicting the voltage in a drone battery by reflecting its internal temperature. To this end, we devise a temporal temperature factor (TTF) metric that is calculated by accumulating time series data about the battery’s discharge history. TTF is reflected to a machine learning–based model, achieving high prediction accuracy with low computation cost. A case study with a real flight scenario showed that the operating time of the drone is increased by up to 23.4% over the baseline method.
