THE PERCEPTION OF COURSE AND SPEED DURING LOCOMOTION; A REVIEW OF SOME THEORETICAL FORMULATIONS

People and animals are able to move relative to their environments. This is a well organized and effective form of motion which is controlled by perceiving and correcting any deviations from a desired path. A displacement changes the angular position of almost all points in the environment, but these changes show a regular pattern. Theoretical formulations are given in the literature which start from this regularity. They are discussed and implications for the study of driving behavior are given. /TRRL/
