Approaching objects produce images that change in the following ways. First, each image grows in size, an effect known as looming. Secondly, the images in the two eyes change in disparity over time. Thirdly, the two images differ in the way they move. This chapter discusses the signals used in the perception of approaching objects and the way these signals are processed in the nervous system. Topics covered include judging time-to-contact, monocular cues, binocular cues, spatial features, aftereffects of motion in depth, and physiology of motion in depth.

Keywords:   perception, approaching objects, monocular cues, binocular cues, spatial features, motion in depth
