Abstract:

WITH RECENT ADVANCES IN ROBOTICS AND THE CONTINUING DEVELOPMENT OF MICROPROCESSOR-CONTROLLED SERVO-MECHANISMS, TELEOPERATED SYSTEMS ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY FEASIBLE FOR APPLICATIONS IN OUTER SPACE. ONE OF THE MORE ADVANCED INTERFACE DEVICES EMPLOYED FOR EFFECTIVE TELEOPERATOR CONTROL IS A 3-D IMAGING AND VIEWING SYSTEM WHICH PROJECTS SLIGHTLY DISPARATE VIDEO IMAGES WITH DEPTH CUES TO AN OPERATOR'S EYES. THE GOAL OF THE PROJECT IS TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF A FLEXIBLE VIEWING SYSTEM THAT COULD BE TAILORED IN A DYNAMIC MANNER TO FIT THE TASK BEING VIEWED. THIS RESEARCH EXAMINES THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN SELECTED VIEWING SYSTEM PARAMETERS AND HUMAN VISUAL CAPABILITIES THROUGH THREE SETS OF EXPERIMENTS: UNDER STATIC CONDITIONS,TARGET MOVEMENT CONDITIONS, AND CAMERA MOVEMENT CONDITIONS.
