Abstract
This document is a user guide for and description of a computer-based, manual tracking task. The tracking task was developed to support experiments and modelling of human performance at DRDC Toronto. To this end, the program allows greater data sampling and collection rates than typically reported by other investigations within the literature; the acquisition and recording rates will depend upon the computer hardware and software used to run the tracking task program. The tracking task program is designed for use on Intel-based computers running Linux Redhat Fedora as well as Microsoft Windows NT operating systems. In order to work on Windows environments, additional, freely-available but non-standard software must be added such as Cygwin, mxml and SDL to execute; few modifications should be required for use on other Linux operating systems. The program provides pursuit, compensatory and general (pursuit and compensatory) tracking tasks. The experimenter can create a forcing function from a linear combination of any number of sinusoids or step inputs.
