Towards supporting remote cheering during running races with drone technology
Paper in proceedings, 2017

Copyright © 2017 by the Association for Computing Machinery, Inc. (ACM). The increasing availability of drones produces a number of opportunities for integrating them in everyday settings and using drones to create engaging experiences for users. In this paper, we investigate how drones can support amateur runners in their endeavours. We explore the possible roles for drones during amateur running races. Through two field studies and multiple semi-structured interviews, we gain new insights on how drones could augment the experience of both runners and supporters during organised races. Finally, we contribute a set of future directions for integrating drones into the sports experience.
