Nissan studies movements of bees and fish for 'collision avoidance'

GasBuddy Blog -- Nissan’s engineers have been inspired by the animal kingdom as they develop new technologies that will shape the future of mobility.

In a report from Hybridcars.com, Toru Futami, engineering director of advanced technology and research, said that studying the behavior of animals moving in groups helps engineers understand how vehicles can interact with each other for a safer and more efficient driving environment.

“In our ongoing quest to develop collision-avoidance systems for the next generation of automobiles, we needed to look no further than to Mother Nature to find the ultimate form of collision-avoidance systems in action, in particular, the behavioral patterns of fish,” said Futami.

Still studying those bees? Not sure this is really such a great use of research funds. Maybe they could get Obama to fund it for them!
