Gaze-Controlled FlyingIssue: XX.5 September + October 2013
Alexandre Alapetite, John Paulin Hansen, and I. Scott MacKenzie
Development of a control paradigm for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) is a new challenge to HCI. The demo explores how to use gaze as input for locomotion in 3-D. A low-cost drone is controlled by tracking the user's point of regard (gaze) on a live video stream from the UAV. The drone will fly in the direction that the person is looking. Our approach relies on a direct feedback loop with no visible interface components displayed. The system tracks the point of regard as the user, who is situated in a control room, observes the streaming video to continuously adjust the locomotion.
