How to improve airport capacity and efficiency with revised standards

[ad_1] Credit: hlopex, Shutterstock Do you have fear of flying and get goose bumps just hearing the term wake turbulence? A phenomenon that occurs when aircraft generates a pair of tornado-like counter-rotating vortices during flight, wake turbulence is a frequently studied topic. Wake vortices can cause violent rolling motions and even flip small aircraft upside […]

How CERN machine-learning techniques could improve autonomous vehicles
