According to an ABC News story, researchers from the Visual Sciences Group of Australian National University found that the primitive visual system of the fiddler crab can measure distance accurately. Crabs have tiny, close-set eyes and very few neurons devoted to vision processing so their ability to do the complex calculations needed to measure distance suprised scientists. They suggest that similar systems could be developed for use in robotic applications.
