Abstract : SRI International has completed the first six-month period of a program designed to provide critical information about the most effective use of visual and acoustic icons to improve intelligibility and comprehension of data representations in virtual environments. Major accomplishments during this period include configuring the virtual-reality (VR) system for conducting psychophysical experiments and performing initial target-detection studies, using visual and acoustic spatial-orientation cues. These pilot studies revealed technological and psychophysical issues that required us to modify and develop experimental protocols for conducting psychophysical studies in a virtual environment (VE).
