Satellite-Order A Big Mac From Your Car

[ 0 ] Apr. 23, 2012 | SBO Editor

Japan is testing a new system that enables drivers to order McDonald’s burgers and other meals via their satnavs.

A highly advanced in-car “Intel Transport System” (ITS) that the Japanese already use to get around their roads will use its wireless connections to allow drivers or passengers to select items off a Mcdonald’s menu next month. The fast food giant was chosen because of the ease of picking up ordered food through its drive-through facilities and the first experiment will take place at a store just outside Tokyo. If the test is successful, the company plans to extend the program to its UK locations.
