Abstract:

This report is a review of vision research results and analyses which bear on five common decisions in display design for underwater applications eye-to-console distance, symbol size, display luminance, peripheral location, and use of color. The material is intended as a database of research documentation supporting a designer guide of recommendations for general classes of underwater system applications such as displays for vehicle consoles and hand-held equipments, painting and illuminating underwater structures. Each of the five display design issues is discussed from the viewpoint of the visualperceptual phenomena which occur underwater and are of consequence to optimizing design solutions. The discussions emphasize the differences between air and water viewing environments, and give particular attention to the problem of turbidity as a determiner of effective display design. Author
