Design for the Remote Control Environment 680100

This paper identifies some significant relationships between vehicle characteristics, operating modes and the capability of the human operator associated with a remote control mission.
These studies were primarily addressed to controlling a wheeled vehicle on the Lunar Surface, from an Earth Base. However, the information related to visual, motion, and sound cues to the operator, and modes of steering and velocity control of the vehicle, are general in nature and have potential Earth application.
A significant improvement in the remote control of a vehicle is suggested by supplementing the visual cues with vehicle motion cues on the driving station (seat of pants) and sound cues related to work load or speed on the power train.
