Jansen, S.E.M. Delleman, N.J. TNO Defensie en Veiligheid Nato Publication year 2008 Abstract Field-of-view (FOV) restrictions are known to affect human behaviour and to degrade performance for a range of different tasks. However, the relationship between human locomotion performance in complex environments and FOV size is currently not fully known. This paper examined the effects of FOV restrictions on the performance of participants manoeuvring through an obstacle course with horizontal and vertical barriers. All FOV restrictions tested (the horizontal FOV was either 30°, 75° or 120°, while the vertical FOV was always 48°) significantly reduced performance compared to the unrestricted condition. Both the time and the number of footsteps needed to traverse the entire obstacle course increased with a decreasing FOV size. The relationship between FOV restriction and manoeuvring performance that was determined can be used to formulate requirements for FOV restricting devices that are deployed to perform time-limited human locomotion tasks in complex structured environments, such as night-vision goggles and head-mounted displays used in training and entertainment systemsOver de invloed die een inperking van je gezichtsveld (kijken door pleerolletje) heeft op de snelheid en nauwkeurigheid waarmee je door een ruimte vol met obstakels kunt lopen (dus hoe goed je dat kan zonder te botsen) Subject Complex environments Field-of-view Manoeuvring Obstacles Biped locomotion Complex environments Entertainment systems Field of View (FoV) Head mounted displays (HMD) Human locomotion performance Human locomotions Night vision goggles (NVG) Structured environments Biomechanics adult article correlation analysis environmental factor female foot human human experiment locomotion male movement (physiology) night vision normal human spectacles task performance time visual visual discriminationvisual fieldAdultFemaleHumansImaging, Three-DimensionalLocomotionMaleTask Performance and AnalysisVisual Fieldsfield of view To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:962fc3e8-c770-43cd-ad00-fcc8e16c7fa0 DOI https://doi.org/10.1080/00140130701628329 TNO identifier 22169 Source Ergonomics, 51 (3), 385-394 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
