What does a bowl of ramen have to do with an all-wheel-drive system?
Not much, unless it is used to demonstrate how such a system – when put into a car – can provide a more stable and comfortable ride for passengers.
In the video, a motorised serving tray equipped with Nissan’s e-4ORCE technology swiftly delivers bowls of ramen to customers without sloshing the noodles or broth as the tray comes to a halt.
The tray uses two electric motors that operate independently, with special tuning from engineers, to simulate how e-4ORCE would work.
Nissan is trying to show how e-4ORCE control technology will benefit passengers in the new Ariya crossover EV.
The brand says e-4ORCE is its most advanced all-wheel control technology to date, and works by managing power output and braking performance for smoothness and stability.
Pitching and diving movements, which can cause motion sickness, are minimised through front and rear motor regenerative braking during deceleration.
