Tracer / Drone


Fire is Fast. In less than 30 seconds a small flame can turn into a major fire. People are unsuspecting to fire disasters, especially in nights. Averagely, it will take over 150 seconds for people to escape the fire in daytime, and this number doubles at night. In order to minimize the life losses in fire, we designed Tracer. By tracing along the pre-set escape route, it can help shorten the time people wasted on calming down and making decision, then lead them to survive. As a drone, Tracer costs very little. It can be easily installed at home and in public places with high fire conditions, like hotel, hospital and gas station.
