Solar Tree & Robot Car

Solar TreeNissan recently exhibited a new Solar Tree and a new version of EPORO, it’s small robotic car, at this years CEATEC in Japan..

The Solar Tree can recharge EPORO wirelessly, without any cables or plugs.  The three solar panels on the tree can generate about 20 kilowatts of power.

For those of you unfamiliar with EPORO, it is a small robotic car by Nissan that uses bees and fish as inspiration.  Bees and fish both have “anti-collision” abilities.  Giving the robots similar qualities allows many of these robots to operate in close proximity to each other, without actaully hitting each other.

EPORO was unveiled last year at CEATEC in Japan.
