The ability of operators to detect step changes in the order of control dynamics is investigated as a joint function of a) participatory mode, whether subjects are actively controlling those dynamics or are monitoring an autopilot controlling them, and b) concurrent task workload. Five subjects either tracked or monitored the system dynamics on a(More)
The information-processing channels, proprioceptive versus visual, that are used to detect changes in the response of dynamic systems are investigated using a loading-task methodology. Conditions are compared in which subjects either control the dynamic system (MA mode) or monitor an autopilot controlling the same system (AU mode). Failure detection in(More)
