Image quality and the display modulation transfer function experimental findings by Ronald J Evans ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Image quality metrics represent an attempt to quantify differences in the quality of the transmission and display of visual information. This report focuses on components in the image transfer process which contribute to image quality as well as tasks through which image quality may be empirically defined. Components consist of the content of the original image, display device characteristics, and observer characteristics. Special attention within these three components is given to the display Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) which has traditionally been the major contributor to image quality metrics. Ambiguities exist in the definition and measurement of display MTFs and these problems are discussed as they pertain to image quality. Additional discussion includes the use of threshold versus suprathreshold tasks as empirical measures of image quality and the use of the Contract Sensitivity Function (CSF) versus the MTF of the eye in image quality metrics. An argument is presented which questions the use of either the CSF or MTF for suprathreshold tasks. In order to test the use of display MTFs in metrics, a methodology is described for digitally filtering images with filter representing hypothetical display MTFS. Although this method permits a subset of display MTFs to be compared, further efforts are required to compare MTFs which exhibit a crossover effect in the spatial frequency domain. Finally, empirical observations suggest that other display parameters (e.g., luminance) must be weighted more heavily in image quality metrics.

Managing color appearance in self-luminous displays by Celeste M Howard ( Book )

Texture discrimination research using an IBM PC by George A Geri ( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A menu-driven program is described that generates and displays fully textured (i.e., 8-bit gray scale) stimuli which have been used to study human texture perception. The stimuli are displayed on standard video monitors using commercial video-controller cards installed in an IBM PC/AT. The program implements both double random staircase and constant stimuli procedures for obtaining threshold discrimination data and also allow similarity-rating data to be collected. Data in each of these formats can be analyzed and plotted. The program also produces files containing stimulus specifications corresponding to any chosen number of superimposed sinusoids, generates the specified stimulus (with either a rectangular or gaussian window) using the data in those files, and performs a monitor gamma-correction via look-up tables. Keywords: Display hardware, Laboratory computer software, Visual research
Shape discrimination research using an IBM PC by Air Force Human Resources Laboratory ( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A menu-driven program is described that is designed to control the presentation of visual stimuli and to collect an analyze response data in shape discrimination research. The program presents high resolution stimuli on an IBM PC equipped with an IBM Professional Graphics Adaptor (PGA) and an analog monitor. Bit-plane layering is employed to allow multiple test and adapting stimuli (1- to 2-bit gray scale) to be presented with specifiable interstimulus intervals. The program implements a double-random staircase paradigm, collects a subject's responses via the computer's parallel port, and analyzes the resulting data. In addition, auxiliary programs are provided for generating Fourier Descriptor shape stimuli, for modifying stimulus parameters, and for formatting and storing the final stimuli for use by the main program.

Instructor/operator station design handbook for aircrew training devices by Harold D Warner ( Book )
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this handbook is to provide human engineering guidelines for the design of flight simulator instructor/operator stations (IOSs). Guidelines are included for (a) electronic displays, (b) manual controls, (c) control placement, (d) workstation design, and (e) workstation seating. Human engineering design standards, scientific literature surveys, and empirical human factors investigations constituted the primary sources from which the guidelines were established. The specific sources from which each guideline was extracted, the source dates of publication, and the source design specifications are provided for each of the IOS design recommendations in the handbook. The human body dimensions and arm reach distances of representative groups of both male and female operators are also included in the handbook. Finally, an appendix is provided containing a comprehensive listing of published IOS design investigations
Calibration and validation of a solid-state anomaloscope by George A Geri ( Book )
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Solid state anomaloscopes whose stimuli are derived from light emitting diodes are less expensive and simpler than conventional anomaloscopes. This effort assessed the test-retest reliability and the validity of one solid state anomaloscope, and obtained normative data. Reliability and validity were assessed through the classification of 36 color defective subjects into one of five categories defined by degree of defect. When all color defectives were considered, both the validity and reliability of the solid-state anomaloscope were less well separated in chromaticity space, although there was no evidence that this limitation resulted in the incorrect classification of anomalous trichromats as dichromats. The solid state anomaloscope appears to be an acceptable alternative to standard anomaloscopes for both research and clinical applications

Aircrew training devices : utility and utilization of advanced instructional features (phase III - electronic warfare trainers) by Donald J Polzella ( Book )
2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An aircrew training device (ATD) is not merely a flight simulator. It is also equipped with sophisticated hardware and software capabilities, known as advanced instructional features (AIFs), that permit a simulator instructor to control, monitor and fabricate simulator training missions. This report describes the third phase of a three-phase project designed to determine the utility and utilization of AIFs by means of a survey of simulator instructors from the Air Force Major Commands. Phase I surveyed 134 instructor pilots and weapons director instructors assigned to principal Tactical Air Command (TAC) ATD training sites. Phase II surveyed 273 instructor pilots, flight engineers, and radar/navigators from Air Training Command (ATC), Military Airlift Command (MAC), and Strategic Air Command (SAC). Phase III extended the survey to 155 electronic warfare and aerial gunnery instructors from ATC, SAC, and TAC training facilities. Based on utility and utilization ratings, the T-5 and T-4 trainers were the most favorably evaluated devices surveyed. They were followed, in order, by the F-4G simulator, B-52 weapon system trainer, and A-10 simulator. The level of AIF use was affected somewhat by hardware and software unreliability, implementation time, functional limitations, and design deficiencies
Modeling eye movement sequences using conceptual clustering techniques by Michael S Belofsky ( Book )
3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An algorithm for clustering noisy continuous numeric data was developed in a learning system called 2DCG (two dimensional cluster generalization). The 2DCG system operates in a two-dimensional space, but a general system could operate in an N-dimensional space. The objective of the system was to learn a set of rules which modeled human observers (in the application presented here, this model predicted changes in the eye position of human observers during a visual monitoring task). The rule set had to be complete, consistent, and nonredundant, while minimizing the number and maximizing the generality of the rules. The development of this model and its performance in accounting for noisy data are described. Keywords: Artificial intelligence, Concept learning, Conceptual clustering, Cognitive modeling, Eye movements, Grouping, Rule-based systems, Segmentation, Visual monitoring. (sdw)
