Abstract : An important factor in the design of equipment for maximum efficiency of human operation is the design, illumination, and arrangement of visual displays which provide information to the human operator. This report provides a compilation of general human engineering recommendations and presents some of the supporting data which should aid the engineer in providing the most satisfactory visual presentations of information. The report is divided into seven chapters entitled: Mechanical Indicators, Warning Devices, Cathode Ray Tubes and Signal Coding, Printed Materials, Instrument Panel Layout, Lighting, and Visual Detection and Identification. Liberal use is made of pictorial, graphic, and tabular presentations to illustrate the data and design recommendations. A table of contents, subject index, and a selected bibliography are included as an aid to the user.
