The ability of moving freely in the environment gives us the great advantage to directly interact with it, improving our discriminative abilities. For example, if we were to inspect an object without the chance to actively moving around it, then we could only rely on the information that we can extract from a single point of view with respect of the object. We would have restricted access to the object properties and we would then establish our decisions within those limits. Moving actively allow us to overcome these limitations and gain access to a more complete set of informations regarding the object. This would help us decide what to do next, whether or not to interact with an external object and, in case, providing hints on how to interact. To this extent moving and exploring the environment augment our discrimination abilities. Moreover, active movements help us to form a complete sense of space.
