We have all been through this situation: it’s late at night and you have to go back home. Alone. And of course, you have to walk for a long time. Pretty scary…
This English insurance company is here to watch your back! Direct Line has imagined an innovative device transforming drones into street light!
Called Freelights, this project uses drone lights to take you home safe at night. To use it, you just have to go on the app and call drones. In a few minutes, 3 drones will come to you, bringing you light.
Currently, the service can’t be used because of legal reasons, as drones are not allowed to fly over cities. Amazon faces the same problem with its delivery drones… However, Mark Evans, marketing director at Direct Line, recalls the fact that this project is mainly intended for rural zones, where the lighting is usually low.
A good idea to make the streets safer at night!
