Drone Warning Pillar / Drone Concept

Drone Warning Pillar
Drone Warning Pillar

Southern China is often hit by heavy rains, which frequently result in electric shocks caused by waterlogging. The system is set up in places where the electric leakage easily occurs, e.g. billboards at bus stop and wire poles. It warns people about the electric leakage area, and also uploads and feeds back the real-time data of water level. Hence it can guarantee the personal safety of citizens and reduce the cost of human survey. The system is solar-powered and usually can be used for charging people's e-products. During the waterlogging, the drone at the top of the device will separate and switch to work mode.
