Both anecdotal reports from pilots and theories of visual cues would predict lower approaches to narrow or long runways than to wide and short runways. Similar, practice approaches made by pilots to a particular width of runway should lead to an increase in subsequent approach angles flown to wider runways and a decrease in approach angles flown to narrower(More)
Two simulator experiments were conducted to quantify the effectiveness, in terms of pilot performance, of four different visual glidepath indicator systems (the 2-bar VASI, 3-bar VASI, T-VASIS, and PAPI) in the severely reduced nighttime visual environment often referred to as the "black hole." Performance in Experiment I was best with the T-VASIS and(More)
—Attitude control refers to controlling the pitch and roll of a mobile robot. As environments become more complex and cues to a robot's pose become sparser, it becomes easy for a teleoperator using an egocentric (camera) display to lose situ-ational awareness. Reported difficulties with teleoperated robots frequently involve rollovers and sometimes even(More)
We provide a progress update on the spin wave nanofabric. The nanofabric comprises magneto-electric cells and spin wave buses serving for spin wave propagation. The magneto-electric cells are used as the input/output ports for information transfer between the charge and the spin domains, while information processing inside the nanofabric is via spin waves(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is associated with deficits in visuospatial attention. It is as yet unknown whether these attentional deficits begin at a perceptual level or instead reflect disruptions in oculomotor or higher-order processes. In the present study, non-demented individuals with PD and matched normal control adults (NC) participated in two tasks(More)
Previous experiments in this laboratory have demonstrated illusions due to variations in both length and width of runways in nighttime "black hole" approaches. Even though approach lighting is not designed to provide vertical guidance, it is possible that cues from approach lights could interact with cues from runway lighting to reduce illusions due to(More)
