Induced Motion

Induced motion is the illusion of movement that happens when a frame of reference moves in one direction and produces the illusion that a stationary object is moving in the opposite direction. This is how some roadway scenes in old films were produced: the background of the road was moved from right to left, but because the camera (the frame of reference) didn't show the mechanics, the stationary car appeared to be driving from left to right.
