Abstract:

The report reviews work on the development of recording techniques for obtaining outputs from the manipulanda of helicopters UH-1D and automobiles. as well as techniques for processing such data. The majority of the report deals with the recording and utilization of measures of visual search activity for the assessment of pilot performance as a function of such variables as level of training, time on task, and sleep deprivation. Necessary hardware for electrooculographic recording of visual search activity was developed, as well as computer techniques for abstracting relevant information from these records. Two published studies utilizing these procedures are included. The report details some further development of the application of analytic programs to the evaluation of reading activity.
