The speed of execution of complex movements depends on both the local, differential properties of the trajectory and on some of its more global metric parameters. The effects of these global factors were studied in free, writing-like movements with either piece-wise constant, or regularly changing curvature. It is demonstrated that the tangential velocity of the pen's tip is tightly correlated, through a power function, with the total linear extent of the trajectory (perimeter). Thus, a strong… CONTINUE READING
