Nissan has released a video of the Nissan e-4ORCE Ramen Counter project that demonstrates how the company’s latest vehicle control technology can provide a comfortable ride in e-4ORCE-equipped vehicles—and for bowls of noodles.
The video shows how a motorized server tray with e-4ORCE tech delivers ramen and maintains the integrity of noodle presentation. Nissan says this showcases how the technology translates to benefits in Nissan vehicles. e-4ORCE control technology is offered on the new Nissan Ariya crossover EV.
Nissan says e-4ORCE is its most advanced all-wheel control technology that accurately manages power output and braking performance for smoothness and stability. The system enhances driver confidence, Nissan says, by tracing the intended driving line over almost any road surface, including wet and snowy roads, without the need for changes in driving style or input. Engineers fine-tuned e-4ORCE’s precision control technology and twin electric motors to provide ride comfort for all vehicle occupants. Vehicle pitch and dive, which can cause motion sickness, are minimized through front and rear motor regenerative braking when the vehicle is decelerating, Nissan says.
The e-4ORCE ramen server tray uses two electric motors operating independently, with special tuning from engineers, to deliver the same swift acceleration and smooth travel on the countertop as the Ariya with e-4ORCE aims for on the road. Nissan says e-4ORCE is the spiritual offspring of the Nissan GT-R’s ATTESA E-TS torque split system and the Nissan Patrol’s intelligent 4X4 system.
