Abstract:

Studies of tracking, no longer the concern of a narrow range of specialists, have led toward expansion of the concept of tracking itself, and to more general problems concerning the control of complex systems. The problem of coupling of man with machine, a key problem in systems engineering, has become inseparable from the problem of tracking and is sometimes directly reduced to the latter. Secondly, the methods of study used earlier only for analysis of tracking processes have become productive in the study of varied forms of human operator activity. The first section of the article on semiautomatic tracking analyzes certain characteristics of tracking as a special form of the process of regulation. The second section discusses theoretical models of tracking.
