KFC China has introduced autonomous chicken-dispensing robots around Shanghai, reported CNET.

The truck is designed in a way that it doesn’t need anyone to operate. Customers who want to place order can touch on the screen, scan the QR code and make the payment.

Once the payment is done, the door of the truck will open and customers can collect their placed order.

A Twitter user outside of Shanghai captured images of the KFC China chicken carts where customers place orders on a touchscreen, pay via a QR code scanned on their phones and then retrieve their choices from a tiny side window.

The Drive website said the car-o-chicken was created by Beijing-based, Neolix, whose autonomous food pods can circulate on city streets bringing chicken to the masses as they pass. The vehicles use 5G cellular broadband connections and can travel 62 miles on a charge at speeds as high as 31 miles per hour. Rather than recharging the pods, their batteries are just swapped out in less than a minute and they're back on the road hawking fried birds, added QSRWeb.
