Abstract : The report summarizes the principal findings from a series of human tracking experiments conducted on the high inertia NOTS-UCLA tracking simulator. Emphasis in the series was on displays, controls, multiple sensory cues, trajectory characteristics, and predictive behavior of the human operator. Results from various studies relevant to particular parameters are integrated to provide continuity. Theoretical and practical implication of the data are discussed in relation to design of range tracking systems. Limitations of findings are also discussed and reference is made to areas which appear in greatest need of continued research. (Author)
