Pepe, A. & Sita, J. (2015). The timing of eye-hand movements during signature simulations. Guadeloupe: HAL archives-ouvertes.
An investigation of the eye and hand movement during the task of signature simulation was conducted. Three subjects’ eye movements and hand movements were recorded using an eye-tracker and a digitizing tablet while they simulated signatures. The study revealed that eye gaze most frequently shifted within less than 17 msec of a pen velocity minimum. It is thought that the cognitive processes overseeing this movement control and the limitations of the visuomotor buffer could play an important role in the behaviour of simulating signatures and signature simulation quality.
