Abstract : The purpose of the present paper is to review studies examining the estimation of distances on the basis of kinesthetic cues. In this kind of task, blindfolded participant explores a path (target distance) with one arm-hand system and reproduces later its distance with the same arm-hand system. The analysis of data shows the estimations depend on three types of factor : 1) the geometrical cues ; 2) the force cues ; and 3) the cognitive factors. Moreover, the analysis about the different variables used by researchers to measure the performance shows that the different types of errors - constant, absolute and variable errors- have been processed either conjointly or independently. By casting these error measures in the probabilistic modeling framework, we show that none of these is inherently more adequate than the others; they differ in the underlying, implicit hypotheses they assume. Discussing the relevance of these error measures thus amounts to discussing the validity of these hypotheses, which fortunately, could be assessed experimentally.
