Inspired by its own motor technology for electric vehicles, Nissan has now developed a mini self-driving car that will deliver your ramen to you without any spills.
Dubbed the “e-4ORCE Ramen Counter,” the new gadget features a flat wooden platform on top of a long, white body sitting on four bulbous wheels that’ll zoom around a restaurant counter to bring your order of ramen to you as quickly as possible once the chef is done preparing it. As you can see in the video above, it actually travels with quite some speed, but none of the ramen is spilled on the journey, even when it comes to a quick halt in front of you.
To make this feat possible, Nissan utilized the automaker’s very own e-4ORCE technology, running two separate motors for both the front and rear axles to give the car all-wheel drive. The integrated system is able to control its acceleration and deceleration with exceptional precision, meaning none of the soup will flow over the edges when traveling. Translated to its full-sized commercial vehicles like the Nissan Ariya, drivers and passengers will be able to enjoy a much smoother ride.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, more teaser images of the 2022 Maserati GranTurismo have surfaced.
