Examination of the eye-hand coordination related to computer mouse movement
Eye-hand coordination means the ability to combine seeing and hand movement. Eye-hand coordination is a complex process consisting of a series of conscious actions. The fine motor skills of the hand were not born with us but learned. The development of eye-hand coordination has begun in infancy through various ball games, construction games and puzzle games. Co-ordinated work of eye and hand movement is the basis for many activities. The proper functioning of eye-hand coordination is necessary for many everyday activities such as writing, reading or driving. The joint work of the eyes and hands is vital for certain forms of movement (ball-catching, kicking). The eye plays an essential role in regulating fine movements. In this paper a general eye-hand coordination task is examined in relation to mouse cursor movement on computer screen. An eye-hand tracking system was used to observe the gaze and hand path during the mouse cursor movement and the acquired data were analyzed by statistical t-test.
