Multisensory Nature of Speed Estimation

UMRAM researchers have recently published a journal article in Experimental Brain Research. In their study, they focused on brain mechanisms and principles coordinating crossmodal and intramodal perceptual grouping. By designing different experiments on perceived speed, they found that certain spatial grouping principles of vision can take precedence over audiovisual interactions in time. Moreover, their findings indicated that the effects of sound timing on perceived speed exist in different spatial configurations. These behavioral findings have implications for designing systems that take the multisensory nature of motion perception and speed estimation into account.
