Sensorimotor activity

Sensorimotor activity is the ability to perform target-oriented movements. This ability is required for tasks in which information from the environment must be continuously processed and converted into manual movements, for example, when steering a crane or steering a bus.

Why sensorimotor skills are an important criterion for human resources?

Sensomotorics refers to the ability to absorb information and to carry out targeted movements based on this information. Of great relevance here is eye-hand coordination, in which movements of the left and right hand must be reconciled with information perceived through the eyes at the same time. To move a vehicle or an aircraft safely, for example, the person at the wheel must simultaneously and continuously perceive and process information such as speed or position and perform the corresponding steering movements with their hands.

What types of sensorimotor functions are distinguishable?

The eye-hand coordination examines how well a person is able to convert visual information into hand movements and thus how well he or she can coordinate eyes and hands in fine, small-scale movements.
