Abstract:

The report presents the results of a review of 1178 technical documents dealing with human factors considerations in electronic flight display systems. Design-oriented human factors data are presented for the following families of design considerations display size, information coding, alphanumerics, scale legibility, visual acuity, display system resolution, flicker, contrast ratio requirements, and environmental variables including ambient illumination, vibration and acceleration. Quantitative, design-oriented functional relationships are emphasized. Research recommendations are made where existing data were found inadequate for design use. A model is presented for organizing the variables impacting upon human performance as a function of electronic flight display system design.
