Abstract:

A VARIETY OF MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED IN RECENT YEARS IN AN ATTEMPS TO INCREASE THE FLOWOF RELEVANT INFORMATION BETWEEN THE SYSTEM AND OPERATOR, ANDALLEVIATE THE NEED FOR COMPLEX, PROGRAMMER-ORIENTED INPUTS THROUGH THE USE OF USER-FRIENDLY WORKSTATIONS. THESE CONCEPTS HAVE CONCENTRATED ON THE PRESENTATION, SELECTION, OR DISPLAY ASPECTS OF THE INTERFACE. AN ASPECT OF INTERFACEDESIGN THAT HAS NOT BEEN EXTENSIVELY EXPLORED IS THE ISSUE OF CONTROL MECHANISMS FOR COMPUTER SYSTEMS. DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED SOFTWARE SYSTEMS FOR MISSION PLANNING AND CONTROL IS DESIRABLE TO ENHANCE THE HUMAN OPERATOR'S JOB PERFORMANCEESPECIALLY DURING PERIODS OF HIGH WORKLOAD. THE INNOVATIVE RESEARCH PROPOSED BY ANALYTICS IS TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF USING BRAIN WAVE SENSING FOR COMPUTER CONTROL. IN THIS REGARD, BRAIN WAVE OUTPUT FROM THE HUMAN OPERATOR WOULD SERVE AS A MACHINE INPUT VIA AN APPROPRIATE INTERPRETER AND INTERFACE DEVICE.
