A model for types and levels of automation is outlined that can be applied to four broad classes of functions: 1) information acquisition; 2) information analysis; 3) decision and action selection; and 4) action implementation.
Multiple resources and performance prediction
- C. Wickens

One particular application of the theory, the 4-dimensional multiple resources model, is described in detail, positing that there will be greater interference between two tasks to the extent that they share stages, sensory modalities, codes and channels of visual information.

The Proximity Compatibility Principle: Its Psychological Foundation and Relevance to Display Design
The concept of the proximity compatibility principle (PCP) is described and its relevance to display design is demonstrated: Displays relevant to a common task or mental operation should be rendered close together in perceptual space (close display proximity).
The benefits of imperfect diagnostic automation: a synthesis of the literature
This review of the literature examines, in a quantitative fashion, how the level of imperfection or unreliability of diagnostic automation affects the performance of the human operator who is jointly…
Examining the Impact of Cell Phone Conversations on Driving Using Meta-Analytic Techniques
There are significant costs to driver reactions to external hazards or events associated with cell phone use, hands-free cell phones do not eliminate or substantially reduce these costs, and different research methodologies or performance measures may underestimate these costs.
