BR23C Based on Bee Behavior


Nissan has been working with the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology at Japan's University of Tokyo and the two have come up with the BR23C (Biomimetic Car Robot Drive) as a way of developing crash prevention technology. Based on the movements of bees, the vehicle works on a "safety shield" concept.

According to engineer Toshiyuki Andou, "The split second it detects an obstacle, the car robot will mimic the movements of a bee and instantly change direction by turning its wheels at right angles or greater to avoid a collision."

Nissan is hoping to incorporate the tech into its cars by 2015.
