Published: 14 March 2023
...John G. Whitehead; Terrell Worrell; John J. Socha ABSTRACT Many flying animals use optic flow to control their flight. During landing maneuvers, pigeons, hummingbirds, bats, Draco lizards and bees use the -constant braking strategy. This strategy regulates the approach by keeping the ratio...

... image movements across the eye, termed optic flow ( Gibson, 1950 ; Koenderink and van Doorn, 1987 ). In principle, optic flow allows moving animals to detect and counteract involuntary course deviations. This is perhaps most relevant during flight, where locomotor trajectories need to be controlled...

We investigated whether the observed behaviour was due to other guidance systems, such as path integration or optic flow-based flight control, and found that neither of these systems was sufficient to explain the behaviour. Ten statistical tests were...

.... Most studies on the dance-related odometer are based on experiments with Apis mellifera foragers trained in small tunnels with black and white patterns, which allows the creation of quantifiable changes in optic flow. In this study, we determined the waggle phase duration-distance curves of two Asian...

Willis ABSTRACT While tracking odor plumes, male hawkmoths use optic flow cues to stabilize their flight movements with respect to their environment. We studied the responses of freely flying moths tracking odor plumes in a laboratory wind tunnel...

The visual resolution that limits the detection and use of optic flow for flight control in both species of honeybee is lower than the previously anatomically determined resolution and differs from object detection limits of A. mellifera , providing evidence that the limits of spatial resolution and contrast...

Finally, the period of the lateral or ventral grating was changed from λ=2 cm to λ=1 cm. Our results indicate that visual information contributes...
