Abstract:

The effects of quantizing the displayed error were investigated in both single- and dual-axis critical compensatory tracking tasks and in cross-adaptive tracking tasks. Both first order and second order controlled elements were used as well as an intermediate order element. Quantization intervals investigated ran from 0 to 1.69 cm on a 10 cm by 10 cm display. A digital computer program was written for use with a hybrid computer in order to mechanize the various types of tracking tasks used in this research and for future use at this facility.
