Abstract:

Twelve operators compensated for errors they produced while holding a spot central in a stationary square target. Filtering their control movements obtained from strain gauges increased their proficiency compared with a condition in which the control movements were presented at a gain of 189. It is argued that filtering of the operators control demands may improve his performance, when the target is stationary.
