Bees and cuckoos will bring savings to airlines
(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) The flight routes of passenger aircraft are generally well established. In practice, unforeseen factors, mainly related to the weather, often force pilots to cover more kilometers than anticipated. A Polish-Colombian team of scientists and engineers, inspired by the behavior of insects and birds, has developed software that allows real-time rational modification of flight routes. As a result, it was possible to achieve measurable savings, both financial and with regard to environmental protection. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
