    Variational methods are used to solve a particular pursuit-evasion differential game. The problem involves the determination of optimal strategies for both the pursuer and evader. The performance measure is the miss distance at some fixed terminal time. Both pursuer and evader have limited control energy. The performance of a trained research pilot, for both single and two-axis control tasks is co... View full abstract»

    A ``critical'' tracking task is developed in which a human operator is required to stabilize an increasingly unstable first-order controlled element up to the critical point of loss of control. Servo theory and operator describing function measurements are used to validate the basic assumptions, and an automatically paced critical task mechanization is described. The results show that the task doe... View full abstract»

  • The Effect of Minor Alcohol Stress on Decision Processes in a Step-Tracking Task

    Twenty men were tested in step-input tracking. Minor stress was imposed by moderate alcohol dosage and an incompatible directional relation between control and display. Some target movements demanded a response in an improbable direction and posed a choice between long delay in response and a movement in the wrong direction. The duration of response latency (rl) and the number of directional error... View full abstract»

    A control stick with a built-in tactile aiding device was tested in a simulated car-following situation. The tactile device gave the driver of a following car information—headway and relative velocity—concerning the state of a lead car. Experimental results (relative velocity and headway variance) with the simulator were compared with those obtained using conventional automobile contro... View full abstract»

    In the present paper we will discuss the task of a pilot (namely of a high performance jet plane) sampling the information given to him by the instruments on his panel. We will present a model that attempts to explain and match the behavior of pilots under actual flight conditions. This model is based on the concept of the different instruments competing for the attention of the pilot. Some may be... View full abstract»

  • Operator Noise in a Discrete Signal Detection Task

    Man's ability to detect visual signals in noise is the concern of this paper. An operator is presented a computer generated two dimensional binary—or ``dot''—display and is asked to indicate the presence or absence of a ``signal.'' Previously developed signal detectability theory is expanded. A model of the operator as a threshold detector hampered by a Gaussian noise source is develop... View full abstract»

    This paper comprises a bibliography of some two hundred entries, selected from a total collection of almost five hundred references pertaining to the human operator, which are concerned specifically with modeling the human operator as an element in an automatic control system. To enable systematic utilization of the material, the important papers are classed in Section A, the Bibliography Subject ... View full abstract»
