ABSTRACT
The article reports on the development of a sensor using trained sniffer honeybees to detect odors by Inscentinel Ltd. in Ireland. The report said that the researchers train the bees by placing them in front of an airflow which contains traces of chemicals commonly used in explosives. It has stated that several defense research agencies have taken a special interest on the technology which could potentially be used on a global scale for land mines and terrorist bomb threats detection.
