Abstract:

In support of a theory for manual control displays, and, in particular, for integrated displays, a series of two pilot experiments were performed to enlarge the data base for the theory. A single-axis tracking experiment was performed with two different controlled elements and four different display formats. The effects of display format were separately evaluated from task difficulty and task performance with a particular view toward quantification of the pilots parafoveal perceptual ability. In the second experiment four different integrated displays were tested in a precision tracking task with a view toward quantifying the effect of integration in the display.
