This style guide provides a generic framework for handheld Operator Machine Interface (OMI) development as part of the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Toronto Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV) Applied Research Project. Detailed design solutions will be developed using, in part, the criteria provided in this document. Style guidelines were derived from literature reviews and a focus group study that validated a draft MAV Statement of Requirements and provided feedback on a prototype MAV OMI. The MAV style guide: 1) Identifies assumptions regarding MAV use that may affect design decisions; 2) Defines the essential components of a handheld MAV OMI; 3) Outlines style guidelines common to OMI control elements; 4) Outlines style guidelines common to OMI displays; and 5) Identifies ideal interaction response times for OMI functions. It is assumed that the major components of an OMI will include manual controls and a touch screen with a diagonal dimension of approximately nine inches. However, as new technologies and displays are developed these guidelines may change due to the evolving design and functionality requirements of MAV systems.
