Tasks lend direction and are innovation drivers in cognitive science and engineering. While both disciplines have a set of shared goals and tools, they have traditionally navigated the space of possible tasks with different intentions in mind, leading to vastly different types of tasks. If cognitive science and engineering are to provide useful constraints for each other, it will be essential that they engage a shared set of tasks. We have previously suggested how the gap in task space between cognitive science and engineering can be navigated in the case of object perception of humans and machines (Peters & Kriegeskorte, 2021). We here present Flying Objects, a toolbox centered around the ability to track objects in dynamic scenes. Flying Objects enables researchers to easily fill the gap in task space with new tasks, acquire human behavioral data and benchmark humans and machines.
