    The tactile sense is an important modality that can be used to present information to the blind. The experiments reported compared reading efficiencies of the tactile and visual senses. The tactile stimuli were administered with pneumatically operated poke probes or with a stenotype machine operated in reverse. View full abstract»

    Comparisons have been made between human describing functions measured in flight and on the ground using two different types of ground simulation. A T-33 variable-stability airplane was used for the in-flight measurements. The ground tests were conducted in the T-33 airplane on the ground with simulated instrument flight and also on a general-purpose analog computer in conjunction with a contact a...

    The general safety of landing aircraft aboard carriers is of utmost importance to the Navy. Reduction of the accident rate is best accomplished by a general increase in total system precision. Analysis of the closed-loop man-machine system, as presently configured, located two prime sources of system inaccuracy in the use of the current display. Its deficiencies are 1) insufficient display gain or... View full abstract»

    Secondary (or ``auxiliary,'' or ``subsidiary'') tasks have often been used to load or to stress an operator while he performs a primary manual control task. As discussed in Poulton,[1]the secondary task should measurably stress the operator's parameter being tested, without rendering the primary task behavior meaningless. This problem has given rise to several types of secondary tasks, ... View full abstract»

    A simple test for optimality is described. The test is applicable to systems forced by stationary random inputs, e.g., the human operator in some tracking tasks. The test has the advantage that it does not require calculation of the describing function of the system. View full abstract»
