    Many direct-translation reading aids for the blind have been built in the past, employing an auditory output consisting of a combination of tones indicating the black regions in a vertical slice through a letter space, or a tactile output consisting of a raised or vibrating image of the letter shapes. Maximum reading rates obtained by the majority of subjects with these reading aids have been less... View full abstract»

    A mathematical model of the instrument-monitoring behavior of the human operator is developed. The model is based on the assumption that the operator behaves as an optimal controller and information processor, subject to his inherent physical limitations. The resulting model depends explicitly on the control task and the control actions. Provision is made for the ability to obtain information from... View full abstract»

    Two lumped parameter models of muscle stretch receptors are described quantitatively on the basis of experimental data from crustacean, amphibian, and mammalian muscle spindles. These models have single-efferent (input) and single-afferent (output) innervation. It is shown that these simple mechanical models can account for many of the behavioral characteristics exhibited by muscle spindle, but ar... View full abstract»

    A parameter tracking system that directly measures the gain and time-delay parameters of the crossover model of a compensatory control system is discussed. The parameters of the crossover model, as determined by the tracking system, are shown to vary between subjects, with input bandwidth, and with subject practice. The accuracy of-the parameter tracking system is substantiated by cross checking e... View full abstract»

  • The Polarity Coincidence Correlation Technique - A Useful Tool in the Analysis of Human-Operator Dynamics

    The paper describes a special correlation technique. It is shown that a two-state characterization of a random process leads to a simple correlation procedure, called the "polarity coincidence correlation method." The utility of the method in dynamics studies of man-machine systems, its limitations, its assumptions, and, finally, the accuracy due to a finite time of observation are discussed.
