Abstract
A Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Atlantic research program is in progress investigating human performance issues related to the use of automated visual alerts under high workload conditions. Previous research comparing performance of two distinct styles of visual alerts – ‘flashing border’ versus ‘static sidebar’ was completed by CAE Professional Services (CAE PS) for DRDC-Atlantic. CAE PS was then contracted to modify the existing experimental software and assist in the resulting pilot and primary studies (Study 2). Specifically the software was modified to include static and flashing variables for both alert types and to modify the paradigm and software to ensure that participants are visually attending to all three screens. The current report documents the work conducted by CAE PS for Study 2 and includes a review of the experiment procedure, setup, data collection method, and observations made during the pilot and primary studies.
