The active explorer has full control over their own movements, while a passive counterpart surrenders that control to some outside agency. The results of a number of experiments comparing active and passive exploration of two- and three-dimensional haptic stimuli are presented. In some circumstances active touch is superior, in others passive touch excels, while in still other instances no difference is found. A number of studies in progress are also described.
