# Constant velocity or at constant acceleration

Are we more likely to be able to walk at constant velocity or at constant acceleration?

Walking with a constant velocity would be very difficult over a period of even a few seconds. You have to take into account that a truely constant velocity would require 100% accuracy. That is, with no rounding of time. There's a difference between walking 1 m/s and walking 1.000324 m/s, and this isn't true constant velocity. I don't think humans have the accuracy needed to walk at a constant velocity.
