smart cities and the autonomous food industry

It’s no longer a secret that cities are making it progressively more difficult to obtain concessions to operate fast food stores beneath residential buildings.

Business licenses for such establishments stipulate, among other things, the use of special hoods meant to prevent cooking, frying and grilling odors from reaching and permeating apartments of city dwellers living above such stores.

Garbage removal is another problematic factor. These stores produce a very large quantity of garbage, mostly food scraps from production or consumer leftovers. The building’s trash cans are inadequate to contain such volume. Store owners must then place large, outdoor containers in order to try to deal with the seemingly insurmountable trash problem.

Whichever way you look at it, sanitary conditions produced by fast food stores within the city is neither a feast for the eyes nor an example of superior hygiene. Overflowing waste attracts many pests, who come to dine on these feasts of trash – rats, cockroaches and other vermin.

Alongside this, fast food stores that also provide home delivery services use third parties or have their own drivers. Either way, the delivery people who frequently visit the store often generate a significant amount of noise, sometimes at unreasonable hours, making it difficult for tenants to rest.

This is why a great deal of thought has been given in the building of smart cities as to how these problems can be solved. The aspiration is to keep the fast food outlets away from city centers and residential buildings.

The answer was provided in the form of small parking lots scattered in convenient areas in cities, on which stationary stores can be built or situated, allowing for food delivery from more “sterile” areas, namely ones that are neither under residential buildings nor locations not suitable for delivery.

Hyper proposes placing on such lots, unique fast-food stores enclosed in 40-foot containers offering delicious favorites such as pizza, burgers, bowls dishes, ice cream, salads and more, all freshly prepared without human intervention, by smart robotics using advanced processes.

Hyper’s stores are environmentally friendly, make full use of the raw materials used in the preparation process and ensuring their compression and disposal utilizing advanced technology. The smart city’s solution to the urban fast-food store challenge.
