English scientists have taught drones to fly in the dark

Have you ever wondered how mosquitoes fly in the dark? And why don't they stumble upon trees and walls? After all, the organs of vision or echolocation, like bats, these insects of the diptera do not use. Researchers at the University of Leeds in the UK understood the mechanism of “night vision” of mosquitoes, calling it an “aerodynamic image,” Science writes.


Insects in the dark use streams of air created by the flapping of their own wings. The jets of air change pressure and speed when an obstacle appears in front, and the mosquito feels these changes thanks to Johnston's organ - a set of receptors at the base of the “antennas” on the head. The maximum distance that a mosquito can “feel” is about 20 lengths of its wings. It was previously believed that this spatial gap is smaller.


Scientists have created a mechanical analog of the mechanism - a set of probes and sensors that record pressure drops. The development is inexpensive and reliable, it can be used on drones. The tests of the new system fixed to the drone were successful, the aircraft detected obstacles in the dark and circled them.

The move follows the recent announcement that the online vehicle checker service that supports the initiative has gone live. This has been developed by the Department for Transport (DfT) to help vehicle owners discover if they will be subject to the charges. Birmingham is also in line to impose a clean air scheme following the DfT’s development of the vehicle checker.

Why rich people from Israel should invest in Dubai and UAE

The announcement of the Abraham Accord last year was a watershed moment for Middle East relations and could change the course of the region’s future. Trade negotiations between both nations have opened up already, and in a matter of months there will be direct flights operating as well. We are already seeing significant levels of interest from Israeli investors, but what is it that makes the UAE such a great investment option for them?


Lifestyle & Culture

Both the UAE and Israel are known for their rich, diverse and vibrant lifestyles. You can experience the very best of nightlife, dining and culture, enjoying a wealth of options that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere in the region. There are a few key differences between the offerings in each nation, which is what makes their collaboration such a unique opportunity.

While Israel has a large number of homegrown restaurants and food concepts that highlight Mediterranean cuisine, the UAE offers an incredible breadth of restaurants. You have everything from eateries that specialize in Emirati cuisine to European-style cafes and high-profile restaurants run by Michelin-starred chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Vineet Bhatia and Nobu Matsuhisa. For the adventurous diner, there is no shortage of choice when it comes to enjoying an indulgent night out.


Nightlife is another key factor that unites these two nations - clubs and bars across the UAE are always popular amongst the nation’s night owls. And now with a newly announced ruling that will remove the need for a legal license in order to purchase alcohol, we can expect that the nightlife scene will be even more popular. For residents of Israel, who have never had any restrictions on purchasing alcohol other than a legal age limit, this is very welcome news.


All that being said, the lifestyle attractions of the UAE are not limited to gourmet dining and clubbing. For lovers of culture, history and the arts, the UAE has proven to be a truly fascinating and enriching destination. There are several museums located around the country, from the globally renowned Louvre Abu Dhabi to the lesser known Dubai Coffee Museum. Music festivals and performances are held throughout the year (though less often at present as a consequence of COVID-19), and the Dubai Opera House doubles as a cultural hotspot and tourist attraction because of its unique architectural design.


Since its earliest days, the UAE has always had an eye on the future, transforming itself from a simple fishing village into a major global destination. Over the past decade, the country’s investment in the future has only intensified, as it promotes Smart initiatives aimed at creating a technologically advanced society. Israel has charted a similar path for itself, focusing on innovation and invention to become a key player on the world stage.


The prowess of both countries is evident in their grand ambitions when it comes to design - whether it is the skyline of Dubai or Tel Aviv, you will find some truly stunning examples of architecture that were a combination of creativity and innovation. However, that is merely a small part of it - Israel invests heavily in technology and electronic systems, primarily for defense but with broader applications. The UAE is a tech giant in the region, and is always looking for ways to scale up its digital infrastructure. As the UAE places greater emphasis on developing artificial intelligence and sustainable design initiatives, there are greater opportunities for investment for tech-savvy Israelis who are looking to stay on the cutting edge of technological advancement.


Economy & Taxation

Israel boasts a strong economy that has been on a steady rise over the past five years. While the COVID pandemic has proven to be a setback, the outlook for 2021 is positive with a growth of over 4% being forecast. The UAE has weathered its own challenges since the global recession and the pandemic, remaining resilient throughout. It will take some time for the economy as a whole to stand firmly on its feet again, but the real estate market is very hot and has been transacting at record levels since the last quarter of 2020.


Cost of living in Israel is largely higher compared to the UAE - you would need to spend USD 1,000 more on average to enjoy the same quality of life in Tel Aviv that you would have in Dubai. Residents of Dubai typically have almost 30% more purchasing power than those of Tel Aviv, and prices are anywhere from 20% to 40% lower depending on the category of goods.
