Sas, Corina and Schmidt, Nikita (2007) A typology of course of motion in simulated environments based on Bézier curve analysis. Knowledge and Information Systems (KAIS), 13 (2). pp. 173-196. ISSN 0219-1377Full text not available from this repository.
This paper proposes a novel method of analysing trajectories followed by people while they perform navigational tasks. The results indicate that modelling trajectories with Bézier curves provides a basis for the diagnosis of navigational patterns. The method offers five indicators: goodness of fit, average curvature, number of inflexion points, lengths of straight line segments, and area covered. Study results, obtained in a virtual environment show that these indicators carry important information about user performance, specifically spatial knowledge acquisition.

|Additional Information:||This paper is the first to explore the interplay between spatial behaviour and trajectory analysis. It consists of a novel method of analysing trajectories followed by people during navigational tasks, and the findings suggest that modelling trajectories with B'zier curves provides a basis for the diagnosis of navigational patterns. This paper in the KAIS journal is an extended version of the one presented at a workshop at the International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces 2005 (acceptance rate 35%).
