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.

I haven't met a scientist that could speak bee, but that is a challenge. Also the other scientists studying fish also have their work cut for them too.

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!
