Summary of NASA Langley's Pilot Scan Behavior Research 831424
The development of a real-time, non-intrusive, oculometer system and corresponding data reduction programs has provided a means of rapidly recording and analyzing scanning behavior data. Knowing where the pilot is looking is necessary but not sufficient information for determining instrument symbology, design and location. A number of scanning behavior myths have been examined and put in prospective. This paper discusses these and other findings obtained in a variety of studies conducted over the past seven years using Langley's Oculometer System.
