Antin, Jonathan F., Dingus, Thomas A., Hulse, Melissa C. and Wierwille, Walter W. (1990): An Evaluation of the Effectiveness and Efficiency of an Automobile Moving-Map Navigational Display. In International Journal of Man-Machine Studies, 33 (5) pp. 581-594.
This experiment was performed to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of navigating with an automobile moving-map display relative to navigating with a conventional paper map and along a memorized route, which served as a baseline for comparison. Results indicated that there were no differences in the quality of routes selected when using either the paper map or the moving map to navigate. However, the moving map significantly drew the driver's gaze away from the driving task relative to the norm established in the memorized route condition, as well as in comparison to the paper map. These findings are discussed in the context of the different navigation strategies evoked by use of the paper and moving-map methods of navigation.

In: D., Woods, and E., Roth, (eds.) Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 34th Annual Meeting 1990, Santa Monica, USA. pp. 189-193.
Text-to-speech systems are currently used in a variety of telephone applications for remote access to information. While this form of synthetic speech may be cost-effective relative to digitized speech, the impoverished quality of the speech signal may adversely affect its comprehensibility in telephone applications. The primary objective of the present research was to investigate the amount of familiarization needed to achieve an asymptotic level of comprehension performance with high-quality synthetic speech presented in the telephone environment. Sixty-four male and female native English speakers listened to digitized natural and digitized synthetic sentences that contained relatively high and low-predictable components. Subjects provided truth-value judgments for which accuracy, response time and response certainty were measured. Results indicate that a high-predictable introductory message of approximately three relatively short sentences may improve comprehension performance of high-quality synthetic speech in some telephone applications.

Command entry and menu selection control modes, along with a combination of the two, were compared using objective performance and subjective preference measures. Experienced as well as novice users of an interactive computer aided design system participated in the study. Although command entry produced performance that was superior to the other two modes, there was a strong user preference for the combined mode. Therefore, it is recommended that combined modes of control be considered for future systems, as long as there is a means to deactivate the menus. These results dispel the notion that menus are necessarily viewed as a hindrance by experienced users of a computer system.

Two research studies were recently performed to evaluate and test human factors aspects of a commercially available in-car navigation system. The first study addressed the driver visual attentional demand requirements of the system and its effects on driving performance and behavior. The second study addressed the effectiveness of the system as a navigation tool as well as methodological aspects of navigation. The results of the first study indicate that several tasks performed during navigation required high visual attentional demand. Design changes are discussed which would likely reduce this demand. The results of the second study indicate that drivers are able to navigate effectively using the device. However, results also show that scan patterns are changed when the device is in-use.
