Ergonomics and human factors : recent research  U.S. ~ Germany

edited by Leonard S. Mark, Joel S. Warm, and Ronald L. Huston

This edited collection evolved out of the 3rd Mid-Central Ergonomics/Human Factors Conference held at Miami University in 1986. The purpose of the book is to provide an introduction to and update of research in the areas of human abilities, perception, motor control, systems design, human computer interactions, and human factors. Each subsection begins with a review of the problems and work in an area and is followed by selected papers which provide new data and illustrate ongoing work. Ergonomics and Human Factors is a resource for gaining access to important problems in these two dynamic areas of research.
