Yes, you have heard right.
A Japanese company will send drones blaring loud sounds music late at night in a bid to force workers to go home.
In a statement, the company said: “T-Friend not only strengthens the security of the office space at night, but also urges departure by regular patrol.
“It has effects such as restraining overtime work and can be used to improve workplace environment for reform of workers
“It will encourage employees who are present at the drone patrol time to leave, not only to promote employee health but also to conduct internal security management.”
Karoshi, which translated means “overwork death”, has long been a problem in Japan, with cases of workers dying due to stress and long hours being so widespread the government publishes official statistics on the phenomenon, and technology revolving around unmanned vehicles seems like a probable solution to this problematic.
Another great use of this technology.
