HUMAN FACTORS RESEARCH IN 3-D DATA PRESENTATION
ITT FEDERAL LABS NUTLEY NJ
A series of experiments was performed to evaluate some of the operating characteristics and potential utility of a volumetric i.e., real three-dimensional display produced by projection of a CRT image onto a rotating translucent screen. Some of the variables tested were perceptibility of relative location of point targets in close proximity, perception of location of point targets relative to display boundaries and perception of absolute and relative motion of targets in the volume. Estimation of location and motion were found to be highly accurate and quite rapid. While the results do not point conclusively to specific applications, the utility of volumetric 3-D in making fine position and motion discriminations has been demonstrated. Further study would be required to ascertain utility in practical situations such as air traffic control, space surveillance, etc.
