Abstract:

The optimal control model of human response is applied to study target tracking performance of an AAA system. The effects on tracking error of different target motions, i.e. acceleration profiles, are studied via a covariance propagation modeling approach and via experiment. Different assumptions relative to the adaptive tracking behavior of the human are explored along with different schemes for inter-axis attention allocation. The effects of visual information inherent in a moving target image e.g. size, aspect angle, etc. are explored via comparison of results with a moving image vs image of fixed size and shape. Experimental tracking results are compared with those predicted by the model. Author
