360 Towing Solutions Houston, a Houston-based towing service provider, recently announced that they are toying with the idea of using unmanned aerial vehicles or drones to inspect car breakdown situations within the Houston area. The owners said that this is going to be a revolutionary step for increasing the efficiency of their towing professionals who operate throughout the Houston area all round the clock.
According to the owners, starting October 2019, the company will deploy a few drones which will be used for taking photographs and videos of stranded vehicles. The Houston towing and roadside assistance service provider aims to use latest technologies for increasing the efficiency of their roadside towing services.
One of the senior executives of the company said, “We have planned to use drones for aerial inspection of stranded vehicles. Drones will be sent to the stranded vehicles first and the drone will be used for capturing photos and videos of the stranded vehicles. The drone will send the photos and videos to our control room and the roadside assistance Houston professionals heading for towing the vehicle would be able to know what kind of tools they need to carry or what kind of tow truck is needed for towing the vehicle. This will increase our efficiency by a few notches.”
Richard Miller, the CEO of the company, added, “Drone technology has come a long way and the technology is progressively being used across industries. We thought we should change the way vehicles have been traditionally towed. With an aim to revolutionize the towing solutions in Houston, we are going to introduce drones soon for aerial inspection and towing situation assessment. We believe this bold step will put us miles ahead of our competitors.
