Paper Abstract

We explore the idea that the visual system uses specialized processes to extract critical information about 3D motion and structure for visuallyguided navigation. We first consider the computation of three essential properties: the relative 3D direction of heading of the observer the timetocollision with approaching object surfaces and the locations of object boundaries defined by motion discontinuities. We then focus on the heading computation relating current algorithms to the perception of heading direction. 1.
