Induced motion is the perception of an illusory motion component in one object or stimulus element due to the presence of another object moving truly in the opposite direction. The phenomenon has been known for several centuries, having been reported in both natural scenes and reproduced in laboratory experiments. Despite the ubiquity of induced motion, attempts to explain the phenomenon have generally revolved around very few principles. Foremost among these is the notion of object-centered reference frame, which stipulates that the visual system encodes objects relative to each other rather than in absolute coordinates relative to an observer. This chapter discusses this phenomenon.
