Abstract
The goal of the present research was to articulate, develop and assess an object-based attention framework for researching and designing HUD symbology. The theoretical, empirical and neuropsychological foundations of an object-based attention framework are summarized and linked to research on HUD symbology. It is shown that an object-based attention framework can be used to address and examine a variety of core issues concerning the use of HUDs in aircraft. A series of five experiments are presented in which a framework is established for examining object-based attention effects in visual displays.
