    It is well known that there is an error in identifying the pilot describing function from routine flight test records because the pilot's output noise is correlated with the input error signal. This paper shows that this identification error can be reduced in the computer processing by shifting the input signal an amount equivalent to the pilot's time delay. This technique for reducing the identif... View full abstract»

    A manual control technique is described in which the force and position cues experienced by the operator from his control stick provide information relevant to the control problem. By constructing the operator's control stick in the form of a mechanical analog of the system being controlled, the apparent complexity of the control task is decreased and control performance is improved. Experimental ... View full abstract»

    Recently, both high quality physiological data and human-operator-describing function data of low variability and large dynamic range have become available. These data lead to control engineering descriptions for neuromuscular actuation systems that are compatible with the available data and that provide insight into the overall human control structure (e.g., the types of feedback systems used for...

    A modular 3-D mockup technique was developed as a method for economizing and facilitating the design of control and display equipment. The integral parts of the mockup include modular easy-to-assemble console bays and panels (dimensioned after standard sizes and increments thereof for flexibility), simulated magnetic backed 3-D controls and displays of actual size, various writing shelf configurat...

    Carbonell [1] recently proposed an economic model of a pilot's visual sampling behavior based on queueing theory. The results of a validation study of this model have been completed. This validation was based on instrument data and eye-movement data taken during mission flights using a Link trainer. The results of the simulation using the queueing model are shown to correlate well with eye-movemen... View full abstract»

    The US national program in highway and motor vehicle safety has provided a new stimulus to human factors research by agencies of the Federal Government. As early as 1957, McFarland and Moore described areas of application of this discipline in a series of articles entitled, "Human Factors in Highway Safety". An important area included in their list was the protection of occupants of a motor vehicl... View full abstract»
