Abstract

There are some conditions where the orientation of an operator is such that the display and its related control are displaced 180 degrees from each other, allowing operation of the control by either hand. The Worringham and Beringer Visual Field principle is a useful design principle that determines the way in which the operator will respond with a control, independent of the position of the control relative to the operator and the display. One condition that has not been tested is when the response may be made using either the left or the right hand. In the following experiment, a design was chosen where the display was located 180 degrees away from the control, allowing the operator to rotate the body so that control may be made using the right or left hand. The results showed that the Visual Field principle is applicable to both horizontal and vertical displays when there is 180 degrees between the locations of display and control, irrespective of which hand is used, when considering a ±10% interval in mean stereotype strength as indicating equivalence of stereotype strength. The practical implication of this finding was discussed.
