Abstract : Use of a predictor display has been shown to virtually transform the difficulty of a variety of complex, manual control pursuit tracking tasks to the level of those having relatively simple control requirements. Within 15 minutes practice, naive operators are able to perform some complex tasks with a predictor display at accuracy levels previously achievable only after extensive training without a predictor display. The purpose of the present program is to explore adaptive use of a predictor display to promote rapid and accurate learning on conventional tracking tasks.
