Optic flow provides all the information necessary to guide a walking 
human or a mobile robot to its target. Over the past 50 years, a body of 
research on optic flow spanning the disciplines of neurophysiology, 
psychophysics, experimental psychology, brain imaging and computational 
modelling has accumulated. Today, when we survey the field, we find 
independent lines of research have now converged and many arguments have 
been resolved; simultaneously the underpinning assumptions of flow 
theory are being questioned and alternative accounts of the visual 
guidance of locomotion proposed. At this critical juncture, this volume 
offers a timely review of what has been learnt and pointers to where the 
field is going.
