This paper proposes using a wearable device for visualization and control in association with an Unmaned Aerial Vehicle applied to structural inspection of buildings. More specifically, an AR.Drone is controlled through head positions and gestures performed by an operator wearing a Google Glass, and the images captured by the drone are visualized on Glass’s screen. We discuss the problems that arise when such a solution is developed, along with limitations that come from today's available technology and how to overcome them.
