Watch: Self-driving ‘car’ that delivers ramen on the counter with no spills to dine-in customers

Nissan ramen
  • As a part of its e-4ORCE RAMEN Counter research project, Japanese automobile company Nissan has developed a self-driving car that delivers bowls of ramen to customers.
  • The car is designed to be around the same size as a large shoebox and includes a wooden tray on top to hold the ramen.
  • After the chef prepares the food, they place the bowl on the tray, and the car drives itself to deliver it to the designated customer.
  • Nissan used an e-4ORCE electric motor that allows the vehicle to deliver the ramen without any spills or mishaps at high speeds.
  • The same electric motor is used in some of Nissan’s normal-sized vehicles, such as the Ariya electric car.

Japanese automobile company Nissan has created a self-driving car that automatically delivers ramen to dine-in customers.

The vehicle was designed with the company’s new e-4ORCE electric motor and is approximately the size of a large shoebox with a wooden tray built on top. Using two motors to operate the all-wheel driving system, the vehicle is able to make quick stops and turns without spilling the ramen’s contents.

How Will A No-Deal Brexit Affect Asians? Things Aren’t Looking Great

Race and immigration has always played a crucial role in the Brexit debate even before the 2016 referendum. From the blatantly racist anti-migrant posters presented by Nigel Farage to exhausting repetitions of the slogan, “taking back control of our borders,” it was clear from the beginning that BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) groups would be disproportionately affected by the decision to leave the EU.

Your new poster resembles outright Nazi propaganda, @Nigel_Farage. Thanks to @brendanjharkin for pointing it out.
