Editor's Pick

Fish serve as the inspiration for Nissan's new robot car concept, Eporo, which is designed to follow the school-like behavior of fish in order to avoid obstacles and collisions with other cars.

Like fish, the Eporo will be able to recognize its surroundings via lateral-line sense and sense of sight and form, using a laser range finder and Ultra Wide Band communications technology. .

Six Eporos will take the stage at the Makuhara Messe in Chiba City at Japan's CEATAC Conference, an annual showcase of innovations in electronic and information technologies.
