A drone, in a technological context, is an unmanned aircraft. The aircrafts may be remotely controlled or can fly autonomously through software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems working in conjunction with onboard sensors and GPS.

drones are typically flown with a controler, but Swiss researchers at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) now claim they have a better way: using the human body.

The EPFL scientists have designed a system which uses the human torso to control a drone as opposed to using a joystick. This would leave a person's head free to look around, "much like a bird.

Data analysis allowed us to develop a very simple and intuitive approach which could also be used with other populations, machines, and operations. The approach significantly improves the teleoperation of robots with non-human mechanical attributes," says Silvestro Micera of the Bertarelli Foundation, which helped fund the research.

Reserachers at EPFL have been experimenting with the basic elements of drone usage for years. In 2015, they were working on a folding drone that could inside a pocket.



Our aim was to design a control method which would be easy to learn and therefore require less mental focus from the users so that they can focus on more important issues, like search and rescue. Using your torso really gives you the feeling that you are actually flying. Joysticks, on the other hand, are of simple design but mastering their use to precisely control distant objects can be challenging," says Jenifer Miehlbradt, lead author of the team's resulting paper in PNAS, in the press statement.

Is it legal to fly drones in India?

Drones are used in situations where manned flight is considered too risky or difficult. They provide troops with a 24-hour "eye in the sky", seven days a week.
