Comparative misalignment disturbance functions (MDF) have been measured for rotations between display and control axes for pure pitch, roll, and yaw misalignments in a high fidelity virtual environment. Twenty participants manually moved a virtual cursor using position control to touch 3-dimensionally, randomly presented nearby targets having a constant Fitts Index of Difficulty. Results show a peak disturbance near 120° of rotation for all axes with Roll being distinguishably more disturbed. Some reasons for observed anisotropies, nonlinearities and an equiaxial spiral feature are briefly discussed and modeled
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
