Paper Abstract

Several operators performed two solar maximum repair subtasks while viewing the workspace with either three monocular (non-stereo) black and white TV cameras or with one pair of stereo black and white TV cameras. For the monocular TV viewing, the three camera views were presented on three TV monitors, and a second operator controlled the pan, tilt and zoom lens power of two of the cameras. For the stereo TV viewing, neither pan, tilt, nor zoom adjustments were allowed, and no second operator was present. Operators were instructed to perform the subtasks as quickly as possible. In all cases, operators completed the tasks more quickly with stereo TV viewing than with multiple monocular TV viewing. Operators reported the learning of the subtasks to be easier with stereo viewing, and reported the most difficult aspect of learning with monocular viewing to be learning which monitor to observe during the various phases of the subtasks.
