Atlanta Food Truck Pioneer Gets an Upgrade

yumbii_super_truck-jpg-662x0_q70_crop-scaleYumbii, Atlanta’s first food truck, has introduced a state-of-the-art “Super Food Truck” to its fleet. The first of its kind on the East Coast, the eco-friendly, low-emissions Super Food Truck runs on diesel. Its highly fuel-efficient engine employs a state-of-the-art technology that converts exhaust into harmless nitrogen gas and water vapor, thereby reducing emissions and lessening the vehicle’s environmental imprint. Founded by native Atlantan Carson Young (32-years-old), Yumbii pioneered Atlanta’s food truck movement, rolling out the city’s first food truck in 2010.

Now, Seeley and four engineers from Georgia Institute of Technology will share the Fifth Annual Golden Goose Award for the “honeybee algorithm,” honoring their work to understand how honeybee colonies are organized to optimally forage for nectar, which unexpectedly led to the development of an algorithm used by major web hosting companies to streamline internet services.
