    The development of a speech display system for the blind built around the TX-0 and PDP-1 computers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is described. The system, dubbed ``SPANC,'' was designed to permit the application of a variety of sound compression techniques to be used. Spelled-speech alphabets and displays were developed. An investigation of the letter sounds was carried out for the ... View full abstract»

    A general structure for the quantitative modeling of human operator behavior is discussed. The primary features of this structure are 1) the mathematical description of the updating of operator information state by an internal model of the environment, and 2) the assumption of optimal behavior on the basis of current state of information.

    The investigation described in this paper was aimed at obtaining information about the way in which the human being controls an automobile at high speed on a winding road. A dynamic systems approach was taken, and three different classes of models were postulated. The optimal models in these classes were then obtained for data taken from three subjects in a driving simulation which projected a lar... View full abstract»

    The results of a current study of multi-variable manual control systems are presented. The objectives of this study are to investigate the human controller's behavior in multivariable control situations and to develop models of the controller which take into account both the monitoring and the control functions that he typically performs in such systems.

  • Human Performance in a Cross-Coupled Tracking System

    Human tracking performance in a two-axis system with cross-coupling was evaluated by modeling the human operator with an asymmetric lattice network. A spectral analysis technique was developed to precisely identify each element of the network. Approximate identification is possible by using a less complex model matching technique.

  • The Adaptive Response of the Human Controller to Sudden Changes in Controlled Process Dynamics

    A model is presented for the process by which a trained human controller detects, identifies, and adapts to changes in the gain and polarity of a compensatory velocity control system. The results of some experiments designed to test the model against actual human behavior are described. The features of the model which are explicitly tested are: 1) A detection process in which contemporary signal d... View full abstract»

  • Muscle Action Potential and Hand Switch Disjunctive Reaction Times to Visual, Auditory, and Combined Visual-Auditory Displays

    Muscle action potential and hand switch disjunctive reaction times of three male subjects to visual, auditory, and combined visual-auditory display were observed. Muscle action potential responses were found to be considerably faster than hand switch responses. Within each response mode, reaction times with the combined display were faster than visual display reaction times. View full abstract»

    A rotary telephone dial and a device consisting of ten thumbwheel switches in a single array were compared in terms of user speed, accuracy, and preference. Where a completely different telephone number was used during each trail, the thumbwheel device took 20 to 60 percent longer than the rotary dial and was disliked by nine out of ten subjects. In contrast, where the successive trials involved t... View full abstract»

    There is a definite need in man-machine system research for a display system capable of projecting large images and capable of taking computer signals as inputs. This need has not been met in the past, except by equipment that is prohibitively expensive for most man-machine researchers. View full abstract»

    The voluntary contractions of unassociated muscles are under the control of the pyramidal system and may be subjected to control and training. The nature and exercise of this control and its relation to fixed "path" habits in animals has been discussed by Lorens (1965). In essence, Lorenz hypothesizes a set of innate genetically transmitted 'basic movement elements. These elements are linked toget... View full abstract»
