6. Dynamics

The first five basic routines deal with abilities that require resting task solvers and mostly resting spatial objects. The basic routine dynamics describes the ability of people to track moving objects while the task solver is at rest (but in some tasks also while the task solver is moving) and to anticipate different courses of motion. Other aspects of dynamics are, for example, the ability to put sequences of images of moving objects in the right order (e.g., a rotating carousel), the ability to recognize and assess motion sequences with and without a scenic background (e.g., pulley tasks and tasks with gears), the ability to anticipate whether or when two moving bodies will meet, but also the ability to actively set objects in motion so that they reach a goal at a certain point in time.
