Standard
Fleetlight

Equipped with two high-efficiency lighting units, the standard Fleetlight is designed for low-speed personal use.

Advanced
Fleetlight

When maximum illumination at high speeds is required, our six-engine hexacopter with three lighting units is dispatched.

The Fleetlights App

When you request a Fleetlight, a notification is sent to Fleet Control. Available drones are then dispatched. You can dismiss them at any time with a single tap.

Fleet Control

Fleet Control is a mobile despatch unit manned at all times to monitor and dispatch the fleet using specialist control software.

Rover

Until now, swarms of drones would only respond to a ‘master’ drone in the air. Our new ‘Rover’ technology allows a swarm of drones to be responsive to a subject on the ground whilst remaining in formation.

Responsive Waypointing

Drones can currently carry out automated missions along a series of waypoints. Our new technology allows a ground subject to ‘push’ or ‘pull’ a swarm of drones along a way-pointed path, based on a user’s movement on the ground.

Real-time Kinetics

Smartphone GPS units are accurate to roughly an 8-metre radius. To achieve greater precision, Fleetlights incorporate RTK Reach Units increasing accuracy to 10-20mm. This technology is only currently used for military applications but will likely be incorporated into future smartphone technology.

Mesh Networking

Mesh Networking is an emerging technology that has only recently been applied to the world of drones. A service like Fleetlights requires many drones communicating with one another. Mesh networking allows drone units to respond to each other instantly, increasing safety and the number of units that can be in service at one time.
