Exterior displays on autonomous vehicles could keep cyclists safe
Digital displays on the exteriors of self-driving cars could help cyclists stay safe on the roads of the future, researchers say. Digital displays on the exteriors of self-driving cars could help cyclists stay safe on the roads of the future, researchers say. Animated representations of virtual drivers, traffic-light-like projections on to the road or even emojis displayed on their surfaces could allow autonomous vehicles to share advance warning of their movements with bike riders.

Scents and sensibility - how tourism may benefit from targeted use of scents to influence customers
Selective use of scents could encourage healthier eating or improve consumers- airline flight experiences The use of scents to generate a feel-good atmosphere is well established at tourist resorts, hotels and shops (and by cunning house sellers with the infamous baking bread and fresh coffee trick) but research shows the pandemic-hit industry would benefit from exploring a more targeted approach to scents to influence their customers and passengers.

Motorists with smartphones could help highway chiefs maintain road quality by sending 'crowdsourced' data from their mobiles that would allow engineers to assess when carriageway repairs are needed, according to a new study. Road roughness is an important measure of condition and ride quality, but many agencies around the world with large road networks lack the resources to regularly check the state of their highways and make informed maintenance decisions.
