Abstract:

A study was conducted to investigate five alternative methods of visual cuing as applied to large display panels with the operator engaged in a secondary loading task. The cuing techniques compared were color coding spatial cuing, linear cuing, and color-modified versions of spatial and linear cuing. A total of 25 subjects were randomly assigned to five groups of five subjects each. Each group was then tested under one of the five cuing conditions. Reaction times to light stimuli were used as the basis of comparison. Subsequent analysis of reaction time data found no significant difference between cuing techniques.
