Scientists Have Taught Goldfish How to Drive


Scientists in Israel have been able to teach goldfish how to drive!

Biologists, trying to discover the origin of navigational skills, created a Fish Operated Vehicle, or FOV, by slapping a tank filled with fish on top of wheels outfitted with a camera and computer.

One researcher explained, "The vehicle was designed to detect the fish’s position in the water tank and react by activating the wheels, moving it in a specific direction according to the fish’s position."

The fish in the FOV, a six-seater, traveled at speeds topping out at less than a mile an hour.

Researchers concluded that the "study suggests that fish can learn to control a vehicle and use simple navigation strategies to successfully perform a task."
