Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to provide a designer or systems analyst a guide to human performance limitations in vision when fixation must be redirected from one display to another. The focus is on large angular separation greater than 20 degrees and on tasks wherein speed is of importance. Patterns of eye and head movements are shown as well as quantitative data on saccades, periods of eyehead compensation, and head movement. Independent variables include inter-display angle, display visibility, operators knowledge of display location, and some relevant characteristics of a possible task which must be interrupted for the refixation. Inter and intra subject variability is also presented. Author
