Abstract
In this paper, the effects of peripheral visual and physical motion cues on manual control of second-order roll dynamics are investigated. In particular, the differences between the use of these cues in compensatory targetfollowing and disturbance-rejection tasks are considered. Tracking performance, control activity, and measures of control behavior are determined from recent measurements and compared with results from an earlier experiment. Most previously reported effects of peripheral visual and physical motion cues in target following and disturbance rejection are confirmed. A comparison of tasks with varying levels of difficulty is found to reveal reduced effectiveness of peripheral visual and physical motion cues in the less difficult target-following tasks only. Observed differences in measured control behavior for target following and disturbance rejection are related to effective strategies for reducing tracking errors introduced by the forcing-function signals in both tasks.
