Abstract

Flight simulators are often assessed in terms of how well they imitate the physical reality that they endeavor to recreate. Given that vehicle simulators are primarily used for training purposes, it is equally important to consider the implications of visualization in terms of its influence on the user's control performance. In this paper, we report that a complex and realistic visual world environment can result in larger performance errors compared to a simplified, yet equivalent, visualization of the same control task. This is accompanied by an increase in subjective workload. A detailed analysis of control performance indicates that this is because the error perception is more variable in a real world environment.
