This System Lets You Fly a Drone With Arm Gestures

Posted by in categories: drones, electronics

A video uploaded by the CSAIL team shows off the system. The drone pilot is able to maneuver a small drone through a series of rings easily just by twisting, raising, and lowering his forearm thanks to a device strapped around his arm.

The goal is to make controlling the drone — and potentially other pieces of technology — as natural as possible by harnessing human intuition.

A paper published last month details the such a “plug-and-play gesture control” that relies on muscle and motion sensors.
