As active observers, we move our eyes, re-orient our bodies and even manipulate our environment to access task-relevant information. The purpose of this talk is demonstrate that our understanding of human behavior can be enriched by considering that the observer is often-times responsible for his own perceptual input. I will do so by first presenting research that: a) addressed how object speeds are estimated during locomotion, b) investigated how we explore objects during learning for subsequent recognition. Following this, I will present research in two application scenarios that exemplifies the role of the active observer — namely, teleoperation of swarm-UAVs and gazetracking on wall-sized displays.
