Six goldfish have been taught to navigate － or drive － an aquarium on wheels as part of an experiment in Israel to understand the extent of their navigational skills and cognitive capability.
The team at Ben-Gurion University developed a so-called FOV — or fish-operated vehicle. The robotic car is fitted with LIDAR, a remote sensing technology that uses pulsed laser light to collect data on the vehicle’s ground location and the fish’s whereabouts inside a mounted water tank.
A computer, camera, electric motors and omni-wheels give the fish control of the vehicle.
"Surprisingly, it doesn’t take the fish a long time to learn how to drive the vehicle. They’re confused at first. They don’t know what’s going on. But they’re very quick to realize that there is a correlation between their movement and the movement of the machine that they’re in," said researcher Shachar Givon.
