    To decide whether or not to attempt a given maneuver, an operator must consider the likelihood of his success as well as the costs or values of the possible outcomes. Detecting the future success of a maneuver from the physical circumstances that make it more or less difficult to achieve and from past experience is formally like detecting signals in noise. Two experiments are described, which indicate that the basic decision model and ROC analysis used for signal detection can also be applied to manual control decisions. Results are given comparing the decision performance of operators who execute the maneuvers with the performance of observers who only watch them. View full abstract»

    The kinematics of remote manipulators and human prostheses is analyzed for the purpose of deriving resolved motion rate control. That is, the operator is enabled to call for the desired hand motion directly along axes relevant to the task environment. The approach suggests solutions to problems of coordination, motion under task constraints, and appreciation of forces encountered by the controlled hand. View full abstract»

    The subject of this paper is an adaptive compensator, which has the function of minimizing the compensation required of the human operator in a continuous single-dimensional manual control system. A random input and a compensatory display are assumed. Use of this compensator does not require detailed knowledge of system dynamics since its adaptive action is based solely upon the operator's control actions. A quasi-linear operator model and the parameter-tracking model method of measurement are used to provide the required on-line mathematical description of the operator's control actions. Design of the compensator is based upon past results, which show the human operator to be an adaptive controller who introduces compensation, via his control actions, similar to that which would be chosen by a servo-engineer in minimizing the square of the system error. The compensator's function results from the established fact that an operator can control a system most accurately when the least compensation is required of him. Experimental results demonstrate that the compensator reduces system error while simultaneously simplifying the operator's task. They also establish some of the limitations of the compensation scheme as currently implemented. View full abstract»
