Abstract:

An adaptive display assists the human operator in detecting, diagnosing and adapting to changes in a system under his control or its environment. Adaptive displays generated by a fast-time predictive model of the controlled element were employed. In the first experiment, a time history display of the real system behavior painted on the same display surface as was the prediction from the fast time model permitted quicker recognition of small changes and made more accurate recognition of the extent of small or large ones. Errors in prediction notified the operator of the need to adapt. Subsequent experiments showed that a predictive display was valuable in adapting to slow continuous changes in a controlled element, such as changes in aircraft trim with fuel consumption, or quicker changes, such as involved in mode transitions as when VSTOL aircraft go from hover to cruise or the reverse.
