How do bats navigate?

Bats get around by a process known as echolocation, which is a process that determines the spatial position of objects by emitting sound waves and measuring the time it takes for an echo to return to the sender. Thus, a bat emits a high-pitched sound, then it listens for the return sound that it has just emitted, allowing it to locate and identify objects. This is how a radar works.
