Abstract:

In current aircraft, nearly all the flight parameter information available to the pilot is transmitted to him visually, whether under visual contact or instrument flying conditions. It has long been recognized that during instrument flying conditions the task of scanning just the essential instruments is a taxing, fatiguing one. It may be that displays using information from other modalities can alleviate the demands of this task. Tactual presentations possess considerable promise of being suitable substitutes for visual displays in flight-control applications. The goal of this program is to develop tactual displays that can be utilized for flight control.
