Lure the Drones - Falconry Inspired HDI


The following paper proposes a concept regarding Human Drone Interaction (HDI) based on the traditional profession of falconry. For more then 2500 years humans already practice the interaction with flying agents for hunting and caretaking tasks. Based on the metaphor of the falconer we propose the following system which enables gaze control of drones utilizing a wearable eye-tracker. By taking the "looking at the watch"-pose, which is reminiscent of the "falconer luring its bird"-pose, the eye tracker gets implicitly positioned in front of the user's face. A combination of body posture and eye gaze allows for GUI-free interaction in the field and during physically demanding tasks.
