Nissan Eporo Robots Avoid Crashing

Will the cars of the future move like fish? Well, with the direction that the engineers at Nissan are taking, who knows? The latest development shows Eporo, a mini robotic car that is designed to move in a group by sharing its position and other information, and the design was inspired by the way fish move in schools. Using laser range finders and ultra-wideband radio to determine distance to obstacles, they are well designed to stay out of accidents with one another or obstacles. In case you were curious, “Eporo” stands for “Episode 0 Robot”, indicating zero accidents and zero emissions. Nissan will be showing off this baby at the Ceatec trade show next week in Tokyo, so stay tuned!
