Abstract : This research program explored human perceptual performance as influenced by display-control compatibility with a volumetric 3-D display technique. The work was organized into three phases. In the first, we studied how the speed and accuracy of the operator's decisions about the orientation of a displayed object (a cube) was affected as this orientation was varied relative to that of a fixed control (a cubical response box). In the second, we studied how accurately the observer can perceive and project a trajectory presented within the display, as a function of the trajectory's orientation. In the third phase, we used a real-time control task to measure directly the relative utility of the three dimensions of the display. (Author)
