Abstract

The experiments in this paper show that the impact of temporal aspects of sensory integration on the precision of movement is concordant with behavioral studies of sensory integrative dysfunction and autism. Specifically, the simulation predicts that distant grasping will be performed properly by autistic people in general, except if it requires a combination of proximal and distant sensory information, as in the case of proximal obstacles. This aims to extend the integration model to robot simulation of autistic and nonautistic grasping behavior and to use it in games for behavioral training of autistic children.
