Methods and Instrumentation for Evaluation of Advanced Displays and Pilot Performance 831462
Advances in technology have continuously provided new flight capabilities. Along with these new capabilities have come new demands on the flight crew. Pilots are now seeing a greater percentage of flight tasks being performed by automatic systems; however, data handling and integration tasks have reached new heights that now require more pilot attention. The pilot's changing role creates a greater burden on the system design and evaluation process, which is used to ensure the man-machine interface operates at satisfactory levels. Discussed in this paper are various methods for evaluating this interface at the different levels of system design.
