Abstract
The report documents Phase II of a research study undertaken for DCIEM by the Display Engineering Department, Litton Systems Canada Ltd. The overall goal of the project was to provide guidelines for the selection of display chromaticity, Neural/optical research and psychophysical and human factors were undertaken in a series of experiments. Visual evoked potential (VEPs) laser optometry measures of accomodation, infra-red pupillometry, target search time and accuracy, and subjective fatigue measures were taken as subjects viewed a variety of monochrome and two-colour displays for up to 4 hours. The results indicated display chromaticity effects on VEP and accomodation, but only minor changes in performance. Subjective fatigue measures increased over the trial period, but did not differ significantly between display conditions. Recommendations are made for additional research.
