[CEATEC 2009] Over the past couple of years, Nissan has used cute robots as a mean to communicate their R&D efforts and it’s hard not to pay attenton. This year,a group of EPORO robots (six) were shown rolling around in a tight group, without ever colliding. Nissan says that it was insipired by how a school of fish moves. Of course, the robot is small but Nissan hopes to incorporate the same algorithms in cars one day. Imagine what a flock of Nissan GTRs would look like… err wait… For the little story, EPORO means Episode 0 (of a C02-free and collision-free world).
