Abstract:

"This is one of a series of special publications issued to help persons outside of the aerospace field benefit from the results of the programs of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Human factors research can help engineers match the capabilities and limitations of machines with those of human beings. Impressive progress in doing this has been made since World War II. Further use of recent advances such as those described here can reduce hazards and increase efficiency in many activities on the surface of the Earth as well as in the exploration of space."--Foreword.
