Abstract:

Experiments were conducted to evaluate subjects ability to perceive the dimensionality of source material used to generate dynamic TV image of simulated military targets. The Dive Approach test series investigated the perception of motion-dependent depth cures during an approach to the target area at a constant dive angle. The stimulus material used in these behavioral tests were video recordings of runs using 3-dimensional and optically simulated 2-dimensional target areas. Results show how movement parallax normally provides useful depth cures only at very close ranges, both for constant dive angle and constant altitude approach geometries. The finding has significant implications for the design of visual simulation equipment to be used for training. Author
