Japan’s Nissan develops a mini self-driving car with their e-4ORCE technology to be used to serve dine-in ramen customers, without spills. 

Japanese automobile maker Nissan launched their new e-4ORCE electric motor recently, commemorating its creation with a video demonstrating its ability to autonomously serve ramen, without spillage, in a restaurant setting.

The vehicle uses two motors to operate an all-wheel driving system, and is capable of stopping abruptly without any spillage or overturning of the ramen it carries. It is also self-driving and after a chef places a bowl of ramen on top, will safely transport it to its designated customer quickly and smoothly.

Designed to be high-performing with precision in mind, the e-4ORCE motor uses all-wheel control technology to maintain accuracy and eliminate disturbances to its contents.

Their e-4ORCE technology is also used in the new Nissan ARIYA, which is set to launch in the US later this year. The tech innovation offers twin-motor all-wheel control tech innovation and “in addition to delivering powerful driving performance, traceability, and stability, the e-4ORCE reduces front and rear vehicle sway when decelerating to help to reduce potential occupant discomfort,” according to Nissan.

Nissan will be hosting an e-4ORCE Radio-Controlled Car Event at the Nissan Global Headquarters Gallery in Takashima from March 18th to 21st, 2022, 11am-7pm. Visitors will be able to witness their new e-4ORCE technology with a radio-controlled car on a specially built track to demonstrate its capabilities. There will also be a “ramen challenge” for participants to compete for a chance to win a unique Nissan ramen prize.

Address: Nissan Global Headquarters Gallery, Kanagawa-ken, Yokohama-shi, Nishi-ku, Takashima 1-1-1
