UK public want self-driving cars to be labelled
Nearly nine out of 10 (86%) people in the UK want self-driving vehicles to be labelled so they can be clearly distinguished from human-driven vehicles, according to a major new survey led by UCL researchers. The research team surveyed 4,860 members of the British public in late 2021 about their attitudes to self-driving vehicles.

Environmentally safe, frost-resistant coatings
Airports are busy, especially during the winter. As passengers wait to board, delays get longer when airplanes need to be dowsed with thousands of gallons of deicing fluids that help them fight the frigid winter. But as soon as the plane takes off, most of the liquid is gone from the surface of the aircraft and ends up polluting freshwater streams and lakes.

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.
