Default Nissan EPORO Robot Car Concept Aims To Bring Collision-Free Driving






Quote:
NISSAN WILL REVEAL a new concept at the CEATEC JAPAN electronics show next week, conceived as an experiment in making collision-free driving a reality.

Called EPORO Robot Car, the concept is made up of multiple units operating independently of each other, but in awareness of each other’s position, cooperating to avoid collision.



Nissan describes the intelligent behaviour of each EPORO Robot Car as fishlike in the way they communicate and move together.
“We, in a motorized world, have a lot to learn from the behaviour of a school of fish in terms of each fish’s degree of freedom and safety within a school and high migration efficiency of a school itself,” Toshiyuki Andou, Manager of Nissan’s Mobility Laboratory, said.

In EPORO, we recreated the behaviour of a school of fish making full use of cutting-edge electronic technologies.”

Each EPORO Robot Car shares information about its surroundings with the other EPORO units, allowing the group to move safely and change its shape as needed.

Nissan has worked with similar concepts in the past, previously developing the BR23C Robot Car, based on the behaviour of bumblebees.

Fish were chosen this time because, Nissan says, while bees tend to travel alone, fish often travel in schools and are therefore a better analog to the driving world.

So Nissan envisions us being driven to work in massive swarm-like fish schools of creepy Orkobots?





Works for me!

So you want a private company to spend its money of better driving education and more law enforcement which are both government controlled?

I like the concept, even though it does take us one small step closer to self driving cars.

So we have a robot racist here

This would be great and all until we have computer glitches (which would be horrid). I'm also sure that insurance companies won't be thrilled about this idea either.
