Effects of control-stick parameters on tracking performance in a vibration environmentA set of manual control experiments was conducted to determine the effects of control stick parameters on tracking performance in a vibration environment. Primary experimental variables were stick design parameters, stick location, and presence or absence of vibration. Considerable effect on control activity suggests that stick design parameters will significantly influence overall performance in systems that respond at vibration frequencies. Stick location had no significant effect on either tracking or biodynamic performance measures. The vibration correlated component of tracking error was relatively small. A model based guide for the design of control sticks in a vibration environment is described. This model is based on the state variable model for pilot/vehicle systems. Effects of vibration are represented as additional model elements and by changes in pilot related parameters of the tracking model.
