Locust swarm could improve collision avoidance

Plagues of locusts, containing millions of insects, fly across the sky to attack crops, but the individual insects do not collide with each other within these massive swarms. Now a team of engineers is creating a low-power ...

An intuitive physics model to predict the effects of a collision

Humans have the innate ability to predict the effect of collisions, merely using their common sense. In many cases, humans can even predict the results of similar collisions in situations in which mass, friction, or other ...
