iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2021

This product is designed as a lighting solution for people in remote mountainous areas walking at night, where there are many unsafe factors, including wild animals and sudden drops at the sides of the path. Lighting drones solve this problem by escorting the walker. The Lighting UAV is equipped with solar and wind power generation equipment; the UAV generates electricity as the wind passes through the fan blades, which also solves the problem of recharging UAVs in remote areas.

A great idea that could be enhanced by adding a GPS tracker and also face recognition software if the location were a dangerous one.
Jury-Statement
We pay attention to the safety of children in remote mountain areas, care for vulnerable groups with design responsibilities, and serve society with excellent design.
