Nissan has developed a mini robotic car that can move autonomously in groups while avoiding crashing into obstacles. Nissan says, is the first robot car designed to move in a group by sharing information. The aim is to incorporate the technology into passenger cars to reduce accidents and traffic jams.

Nissan says the cars' design was inspired by the way fish move in schools. The automaker studied how large schools of fish can move without colliding The robots use laser range finders and ultra-wideband radio to determine distance to obstacles. They also communicate with each other to form the most efficient group formation to maneuver through tight spots
