2723 - Goldfish trained to 'drive' robotic vehicle on land by researchers in Israel
Researchers at Israel's Ben-Gurion University successfully trained goldfish to navigate a small robotic vehicle on land. "We trained goldfish to drive a wheeled platform that reacts to the fish's movement," a researcher said. The fish were tasked to "drive" the vehicle towards a visual target, which was observable through the walls of the tank, regardless of their starting point.
