An aircraft simulator, with a closed-loop computer-generated visual display, was used to teach flight-naive subjects to land. A control training condition in which subjects learned to land with reference to a skeletal airport scene consisting of a horizon, runway, centerline, and aiming bar was tested against training with constantly augmented feedback, adaptively augmented feedback, and a flightpath tracking display. A simulator-to-simulator adaptively of training design showed that adaptively… Expand

Simulator Design and Instructional Features for Air-to-Ground Attack: A Transfer Study
A transfer experiment was conducted to define simulator design requirements and instructional procedures for an air-to-ground attack trainer. Two levels of scene detail, three levels of field ofExpand
Quasi-transfer as a predictor of transfer from simulator to airplane.
TLDR
Evidence is reviewed that indicates some correspondence between quasi-transfer and transfer effects and the development of design principles that can maximize training transfer and cost-benefit trade-offs are well established. Expand
The Effect of Concurrent Bandwidth Feedback on Learning the Lane-Keeping Task in a Driving Simulator
TLDR
Off-target feedback is superior to on- target feedback for learning the lane-keeping task in a driving simulator and provides knowledge to researchers and designers of training systems about the value of feedback in simulator-based training of vehicular control. Expand

TLDR
A test was conducted of the hypothesis that the training value of augmented feedback in a tracking situation will depend upon the discernibility of input and fundamental feedback signals, and the results are regarded as confirming the hypothesis and as helping to explain previous contradictory findings on the value of augmenting feedback.

Effects of classically differentiated supplementary feedback cues on tracking skill.
TLDR
A sample of 108 Ss was exposed to the same predifferentiation procedure, but then were subgrouped in terms of the kind of feedback signal received in tracking so that tracking effects were reasonably attributable to the transfer of specific stimulus functions generated in the differentiation trials.
