As part of a series of experiments to improve the everyday lives of people, insurance company Direct Line has created a prototype fleet of flying torch drones to help people feel safer in darkly-lit areas at night.
Increasingly, technology will shift the centre of gravity for insurance from restitution towards prevention. We want to lead the trend into this space and so we are always looking at innovative ways to proactively improve everyday life through emerging technologies.
Direct Line say the ‘Fleetlights’ are a prototype and they currently have no plans to release them as a commercial product. More information can be found on their website at; https://www.directline.com/fleetlights
