..., such a backup cue could improve distance estimation. Our results, however, showed that the SDR was affected by the distance and capacitance of dipole objects ( Fig. 7 B3). Thus, waveform images are unlikely to provide reliable distance estimations, which in turn appear to be exclusively possible by using...

... to accurately strike at artificial prey, even if none of these typical distance estimation cues are available to them. Specifically, we excluded bilateral binocular stereopsis by occlusion, confounded possible motion parallax cues with an artificially moving prey, and excluded the possibility that beetle larvae...

..., apparently ignoring the manipulation of the preceding homebound travel. In honeybees, similarly ambiguous results exist, with some studies reporting outbound travel as decisive in distance estimation ( Srinivasan et al., 1997 ), and others reporting averaging of outbound and inbound journeys ( Otto, 1959...

...Gunnar Grah; Rüdiger Wehner; Bernhard Ronacher SUMMARY In this study, we investigate the ability of desert ants to gauge the ground distances of sloped sections in a three-dimensional (3D) outbound path. Ground distance estimation, as opposed to a simple measurement of walking distances...
