In robotics one often deal with combining visual input and motor kinematics. A Sensory Motor-Map(SMM) is a map between perception and action such that the robot gets an understanding of how certain motor actions affect the perceived reality. Simply put given some visual input the map gives the kinematics and dynamics to generate the given visual. Here is the Wikipedia page I created, hoping it will not get deleted
This post is part of my explaining concepts that surface in my PhD.
