Abstract:

The book gives a description of the basic problems of engineering psychology, notes the experimental data which have been accumulated and indicates certain ways for accomplishing future research. It examines the most general characteristics of man as an element of a control system, the speed, accuracy, and reliability of his actions. Attention is directed to problems of receiving and processing information by man. These deal with the physical properties of the signal involved, evaluation of the quantity of information man can receive, and finally by what psychic such information is received. The major emphasis of the book is on the interaction of men and machines in a control system. Author
