Paper Abstract

A perceptual evaluation compared tracking performance when using color versus panchromatic synthetic imagery at low frame rates. Frame rate was found to have an effect on tracking performance for the panchromatic motion imagery. Color was found to be associated with improved tracking performance at 2 frames per second (FPS), but not at 6 FPS or greater. A self estimate of task confidence given by the respondents was found to be correlated to the measured tracking performance, which supports the use of task confidence as a proxy for task performance in the future development and validation of a motion imagery rating scale.
