    Following well-established feedback control design principles, a control theoretic model of driver steering behavior is presented. While accounting for the inherent manual control limitations of the human, the compensation dynamics of the driver are chosen to produce a stable, robust, closed-loop driver-vehicle system with a bandwidth commensurate with the demands of the driving task being analyze...

    A description is given of a prototype training assessment tool developed as part of a computer-based cockpit design and analysis workstation that estimates the training resources and time imposed by the anticipated mission and cockpit design. Embedding instructional system and training analysis domain knowledge in a production system environment, the tool allows crew station designers to readily d... View full abstract»

    NASA Langley Research Center has developed a novel, precision, dual-arm telerobotic manipulator system which has seven degrees of freedom in each arm. As delivered, a master-slave control mode is implemented from a pair of kinematically identical master arms with force reflection; however, robotic or manual control from a variety of different input devices can be implemented. The Langley laborator... View full abstract»

    The abilities of a human operator have been examined experimentally in a manual control task. In these experiments, a human operator was instructed to control the output of a plant so as to minimize a performance index shown after each trial. The performance index, a combination of control effort and plant results, allows the operator to improve performance after repeated trials. The human operato... View full abstract»

    The simplest model for a human operator is a gain with a time delay (which usually ranges between 0.15 and 0.4 s). However, there have been no comprehensive studies evaluating human control strategies in visually controlled flight (i.e. flight using a visual scene and not instruments). The results of preliminary studies on this topic are described. Human visually guided flight control is important... View full abstract»

    A description is given of the development of a novel interactive computer-aided control system design (CACSD) package for the design of linear multivariable control systems. The package incorporates the stable factorization design technique and other recent design methodologies, such as the systematic design approach. To provide a high level of interactive design environment for the user, knowledg... View full abstract»
