    Although most research and theory building on human operator performance has considered the operator to be a continuous single-channel controller, straightforward examination of real situations and real behavior shows him to be a sampleddata, commutated single-channel controller. This arises from the fact that the human operator must distribute his attention sequentially over many information sour... View full abstract»

    The human operator in a manual tracking task is kmown to change his control characteristics to adapt to particular controlled element dynamics, input characteristics and task requirements. This report describes an experimental investigation of human adaptive control following sudden changes in gain or polarity of the controlled element in a closed-loop tracking task. The experiments used primarily... View full abstract»

    This study compares the relative effectiveness of a conventional display of object location with the effectiveness of various probabilistic displays of object location. Several display possibilities for presenting probabilistic information to a system operator are discussed, and an experiment is performed to test the potential usefulness of selected probabilistic display types in improving operato...

    The theory of optimum filtering and prediction is applied to man-machine tracking control systems to improve performance in tracking waveforms which have a somewhat random appearance. The predicted values of the input for a set of prediction times are displayed in perspective for interpretation by the human operator. This display is evaluated in an experimental tracking task.

    This study presents the results of a preliminary examination of the nonlinear characteristics of a closed-loop manual control system operated in the compensatory tracking mode. particular consideration is given to 1) nonlinearities of the closed-loop system resulting from inherent nonlinearities within the human operator and 2) the adaptive capabilities of the human operator in compensating for no...

    A technique is discussed for achieving a versatile, controllable visual simulation of a road or flight path which appears in realistic three-dimensional perspective and motion in response to an electronic analog of vehicle trajectory and attitude. In comparison to other available schemes for achieving artificial display of ``highways in the sky,'' the major advantage of the present scheme is relat... View full abstract»
