Verifying Experimental Study on Colorful Display Schemes for See-through Display Information
Objective: To verify the superiority of colorful display schemes proposed by authors before for see-through display information. Methods: 67 Chinese male pilots finished flight and combat tasks in two colorful schemes versus one monochrome scheme with dynamic simulating flight procedure and then evaluated every scheme. Results: (1) There was superiority with several performance indexes in two colorful schemes. (2) For alerting information in colorful display schemes, their correct reaction times (CRTs) were shorter and faster than those in monochrome scheme. (3) In subjective evaluations, there were higher rate of excellent and good with several indexes in colorful schemes. Conclusions: There were superiority with some performance and subjective evaluation indexes in colorful schemes. The advantages were evident especially for the time of accomplishing identification of alerting information. The superiority of two colorful display schemes was verified in this study.
