Abstract:

The program was directed towards the development of tactile displays for flight control. The results of the first phase of this program have been reported in the August 73 Final Report AD-767 763. The report presents a description of an improved tactile display system and its evaluation as a one and two axis error display instrument during a series of manual tracking experiments. Both electrotactors and vibrotactors arrays were used. These experiments were run to obtain modeling data to predict the display performance during the forthcoming F-4 simulator evaluation phase of the program. The tracking error scores for the new tactile display are better than for the initial system. Of the four subjects employed during these tests, two preferred the electrotactor array because it provides a more clearly perceptable haptic display.
