Some experts believe the self-driving cars are in for a boom, thanks to how the coronavirus pandemic has started to reshape how we purchase goods. When a top priority is to slow the spread of a contagious virus, having things delivered can help some people. Well, that’s what renowned fried chicken expert KFC did in China. Users on Twitter first spotted these self-driving food trucks of sorts in the country serving up contract-free fried chicken. These “restaurants on wheels” appear to be part of a partnership between a Chinese company called Neolix and Yum Brands, which owns KFC. Last month, Forbes reported that Neolix had started to work with Yum on driverless vehicles to serve food and specifically cited partnerships with KFC and Pizza Hut. As for how the little food pods work, it looks like customers make a selection via screens and pay via a QR code and then a door opens to reveal their order. It’s not clear what stops someone from taking more than what they ordered, but surely there’s some sort of system for that. There isn’t anyone inside preparing food as it happens. It seems the spread of this sort of approach is inevitable, especially in a post-pandemic world. But whether the robo food trucks will catch on will ultimately be for the public to decide.
