Gaze-Tracking Glasses Control Drone to Fly Wherever You Look

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, U.S. Army Research Laboratory, and New York University have developed a pair of lightweight gaze-tracking glasses and a small computing unit, along with a small drone that will fly wherever you look. The glasses are equipped with a gaze tracker, a camera, and an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). These components estimate the relative position of the head with respect to a quadroter and decouple the gaze direction from the head orientation.
