Abstract : A preliminary investigation of the effect of actual motion distances on response times under uncertainty was performed. An experiment in which three subjects were presented with five levels of choice uncertainty and three simulated control panel configurations was conducted. Results indicated variations in response times attributable to changes in motion distance at the five percent level of significance. Explanatory models are proposed. Recommendations for future study are given. (Author)
