A review of the effects of vibration on visual acuity and continuous manual control, part I: Visual acuity

This is the first part of a review of the effects of vibration on vision and continuous manual control. In this part experimental research into the effects on human vision of both object vibration and whole-body vibration is summarized. Knowledge of the respective effects of vibration variables (principally amplitude, frequency and direction) and visual task variables (such as illumination, size and viewing distance) is discussed in separate sections. It is shown that while many factors are important and current understanding is far from complete, the literature does contain useful information. The conditions studied in those experiments concerned with the effects of whole-body vibration on vision are tabulated in the Appendix so as to provide a convenient guide to the literature.

Abstract

This is the first part of a review of the effects of vibration on vision and continuous manual control. In this part experimental research into the effects on human vision of both object vibration and whole-body vibration is summarized. Knowledge of the respective effects of vibration variables (principally amplitude, frequency and direction) and visual task variables (such as illumination, size and viewing distance) is discussed in separate sections. It is shown that while many factors are important and current understanding is far from complete, the literature does contain useful information. The conditions studied in those experiments concerned with the effects of whole-body vibration on vision are tabulated in the Appendix so as to provide a convenient guide to the literature.
