    A new model of the human operator, termed the surge model, is developed. It is dual mode, containing a linearized constant coefficient model and an optimum second-order controller model. The equations describing its performance are written in the time domain. When the absolute values of the system error and of the first error derivative are less than certain specified bounds, the linear constant c... View full abstract»

    Two possible types of keyboard input to a central processor are 1) short codes consisting of combinations of characters extracted from several descriptors, and 2) somewhat longer literal codes where words are spelled letter for letter. The literature indicates that performance should be faster and more accurate with the short combination codes than with the literal type of codes, both codes having... View full abstract»

    A model of human operator behavior is presented based on the following assumptions: that the input and output are quantized into a limited number of states and that data processing is performed on asynchronous samples of this coarsely quantized input, i.e., that the human operator behaves as a finite-state machine. A hybrid element or hybrid actuator is used to achieve a continuous variation of ou... View full abstract»

    A model of the neuromuscular system based on the physiology of muscle is described. All elements of the model have been discussed in earlier literature but certain new implications are considered here. View full abstract»
