Kirk Moffitt
La Quinta, CA, United States
Human factors consultant specializing in virtual displays and controls.

Kirk Moffitt specializes in the application of human factors to the design of displays and controls. He holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Psychology from New Mexico State University, and has30 years of industry experience.                                                         

Dr. Moffitt's primary work has been on near-eye displays and virtual imagery applications, and he is the co-editor of the text Head Mounted Displays: Designing for the User. He is currently involved in augmented realtiy (AR), virtual reality (VR) an d mixed-reality research and development.   

His clients have included military, medical, industrial and entertainment companies. He has recently participated in research on binocular display interface issues involving vergence mismatch in the M2DART simulator, dichoptic fusion to increase the field-of-view, and the use of color and stereo symbology in tactical applications. Dr. Moffitt has taught courses in human factors and statistics for the University of Southern California, and one-day seminars on HMD design for SPIE and other organizations.  

Visibility of color symbology in head-up and head- mounted displays in daylight environments.Color Visibilty
Color-coded symbology has the potential to enhance the performance of people using head-up and head-mounted displays (HUDs and HMDs). The distinguishing feature of these displays is the optical combiner that presents symbology combined with the forward real-world scene. The presence of high-ambient daylight can desaturate the symbol colors, making them difficult to recognize. We defined a set of colors for testing based on color-coding conventions, color symbology research, and results from our
Feeling a little blue: Problems with the symbol color blue for see-through displays and an alternative color solution.
The color blue is problematic for inclusion in a symbology color set for use by operators with head-up and helmet-mounted displays (HUDs and HMDs), as well as with augmented reality (AR) displays. The distinguishing feature of these see-through displays is the optical combiner that presents color-coded symbology combined with the forward real-world scene. Unlike head-down displays that can use color fills, see-through displays are limited to lines and text. The presence of high-ambient daylight
Head-mounted display image configurations
A scheme for organizing head-mounted displays based primarily on image configuration and secondarily on the display/optics and head-mounted sensor(s) is offered as a way to clarify design and human interface issues. These attributes are linked to field-of-view, image content and device applications. An argument is made for discarding confusing and outdated concepts. This organization of a diverse set of display devices is one step toward an eventual handbook of head-mounted displays. These conc
