China is looking for solutions that can help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. KFC is up to the task, and launches a new technology that could make it easier – autonomous 5G food trucks.
The new KFC food trucks are pilloted by the 5G network, thanks to which the customers will be able to order from the restaurant’s menu at their convenience. To place an order, simply use the touchscreen, then pay via the QR code. After the transaction is complete, a door in the vehicle will open, and the order can be picked up – all without the involvement of a vendor.
The service is currently only available in China, but if the “restaurants-on-wheels” are met with positive reception from the customers, the chain will consider deploying the new technology around the world. Pizza Hut is also contemplating the use of autonomous food trucks for their restaurants.
As for now, it is uncertain whether this service will also make an appearance in Poland – but with the rapid progress of the coronavirus pandemic, it is possible that such solutions will become inevitable.
