The control of direction and avoidance of collision is fundamental to effective locomotion. A strong body of research has explored the use of optic flow and/or eye-movement signals in judging heading. This presentation will outline research on active steering that explores the use of optic flow and eye-movement signals, but where a key aspect of effective control is where you look and when. The talk will also briefly outline studies using fMRI that highlight the neural systems that support the control model proposed from the behavioural research. Although this model is based on principles derived from optical geometry it conveniently converges on the heuristics used in advanced driver/motorcyclist training, and elite cycling, for negotiating bends at speed.
