Evaluation of the usefulness and usability of cockpit situation display perspectives for ROV operations in approach civil air space  (2006)
Abstract Header
A distributed simulation of ROV operations was conducted by NASA Ames Flight Deck Display Research Laboratory (FDDRL) and the Center for Aeronautic Technologies (CSAAT) at California State University, Long Beach. The goals of this simulation were 1) to examine ROV operators' ability to maintain standard terminal separation from other aircraft and ROVs, 2) to examine the possibility of operating ROVs in terminal airspace without major disruptions in the inbound traffic flows, and 3) to evaluate proposed ROV operator tools. The current paper focuses on this third goal. Specifically the paper describes the motivation behind the development of the manipulatable 2D/3D Cockpit Situation Display (CSD), and examines its usefulness and usability. Data from questionnaires, and from observations of how the CSD was used, suggest that both the CSD format, and the ability to manipulate the CSD viewing angle, were useful and usable. However, workload appeared to play an important role in the perceived usefulness and usability of the CSD.
