Closely, classical researches suppose that an imitative artificial system must be able to build a model of the demonstrator's geometry, in order to reproduce finely the movements on each joints. Conversely, we will advocate that if imitation is viewed as a part of a developmental course, then (1) an artificial developing system does not need to build any internal model of the other, to perform real-time and low-level imitations of human movements despite the related correspondence problem between man and robot and, (2) a simple sensory-motor loop could be at the basis of multiples heterogeneous imitative behaviors often explained in the literature by different models.
