Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of a motion sensation literature review conducted to identify current motion cue models which might be used to model pilot behavior in a motion environment. Models for the vestubular end organs are critically reviewed, as are models for subjective sensation of self- velocity and orientation. Modelling deficiencies are identified in terms of body-axis orientation, dynamic response, and threshold behavior. The model implications for workload and cue predictability in a closed-loop piloted task are also discussed.
