Abstract or Summary
  • Adapting man, as an organic link, to closed loop control systems, is increasingly presenting problems to designers of systems of any nature. Performance of the human in the systems is dependent upon a multitude of recognized factors, and many as yet unknown factors and variables. In order to investigate the problem areas involved, a means of simulating real life conditions must be available. This study centers on the development of such a laboratory simulator system and its requirements. The main area of interest selected is the human operator in tracking operations. This subject area is thoroughly researched and the major problem areas are briefly discussed. The tracking areas to be simulated include pursuit and compensatory tracking tasks, multi-dimensional tracking tasks as well as environmental control criteria for the subject, the latter consisting of an environmentally controlled chamber. Facilities were selected, based upon previous tracking studies to vary some of the basic environmental conditions: illumination, sound pressure and temperature. The tracking tasks available can be varied in type of input signal display media, operator control unit as well as waveform of the input signal, operator control response function and performance data collection. Timed, random and cumulative timed data collection features are designed into the system. In addition a chart recorder facility and interface is available for obtaining a hard copy of the actual tracking performance. Complete circuit descriptions and diagrams are presented in the appendices of this thesis. Actual conclusions on data obtained with the system are not included although a large data file has already been created. Numerous experiments are suggested however, and typical machine outputs are illustrated, interpreted and discussed. Because of the magnitude of possibilities to experiment and investigate using the simulator system, it is beyond the scope of this project to provide data and subsequent conclusions or observations.
