With recent technological advances, the shapes of mobile devices are evolving. For example, we now see the emergence of new types of devices in form of autonomous aerial vehicles (drones) that become available in our everyday environment. As drones are becoming increasingly autonomous, it is crucial to understand how interaction with such devices will happen. These new devices, allow us to imagine new contexts of map usage, as for instance drone-based autonomous tour guides ((Figure 9). In order for those scenarios to happen, many problems need to be investigated. From a perspective in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), the first questions to study are related to suitable input and output techniques. We iteratively designed interaction techniques for Navidrone, a drone-based autonomous tour guide. This work has been done in collaboration with the Prof. James Landay and Dr. Jessica Cauchard from the Stanford HCI Group.
