Abstract:

The primary purpose of the experimental series reported here is to investigate, on a preliminary and exploratory basis, human operator performance differences between pursuit and compensatory displays. For each display type a wide range of forcing function bandwidths and controlled element dynamics was used. The effect of the additional information provided by separately displaying both forcing function and controlled element output pursuit rather than their difference compensatory was evaluated using the mean-squared error and a quantity called the effective open-loop describing function Y beta. As a prelude to the new data, past pursuitcompensatory tracking results are reviewed, and then a tie-in is made between these and the current series.
