A manual control technique is described in which the force and position cues experienced by the operator from his control stick provide information relevant to the control problem. By constructing the operator's control stick in the form of a mechanical analog of the system being controlled, the apparent complexity of the control task is decreased and control performance is improved. Experimental results are included that compare performance of an operator controlling a second order system in a compensatory control task using both conventional control methods and the matched manipulator technique.
