Some time ago, many countries were plagued by locusts. Hundreds of billions of locusts pass through the country, sweeping all the crops that can have crops. However, some researchers have found something strange, < / P > < p > under the action of this neuron, if a locust (locust a) is flying, if other locusts (locust b) approach, its image will be mapped in its eyes. The closer the locust B is, the stronger the signal that stimulates neurons. < / P > < p > based on this study, the team developed a nano-sized collision detector, which can simulate the neuronal response of grasshoppers with a small amount of energy, and respond to an incoming object by increasing the current.

, however, the difficulty of this study is that locust can only avoid collision with other locust, while self driving cars not only evade other vehicles, but also avoid pedestrians, roadblocks and other objects. However, under the control of the algorithm, the probability of misidentification will be greatly reduced. Currently, the detector can react within two seconds of sensing an object. Although it can not reach the effect of changing direction within hundreds of milliseconds between locusts, it also has a certain practical value. In addition, the energy consumption of the sensor is small, and it can cooperate with other sensors to bring greater effectiveness. < / P > < p > at present, automatic driving technology has become the next trillion level big market in the automotive field, and any small technological progress in this industry may bring huge synergy effect. After 12 years, “world class Super project” Shantou Bay Tunnel ushers in a historic breakthrough today
