Nissan’s Experimental Mini Car Uses Biomimicry to Avoid Crashes

Nissan’s Experimental Mini Car Uses Biomimicry to Avoid Crashes

Eporo is an experimental mini robotic car developed by Nissan that mimics that movement of fish travelling in schools to avoid crashes.

Eporo is an experimental mini robotic car developed by Nissan that mimics that movement of fish travelling in schools to avoid crashes.

Using laser range finders and ultra-wideband radio, the Eporo can determine distance to obstacles and communicate with other units  to form the most efficient formation to move through narrow spaces. The ultimate aim of this project is too incorporate this technology into passenger cars to reduce accidents and traffic jams.
