Smart Dinner / Ordering System

Smart Dinner
Smart Dinner

Smart Dinner is a concept for an interactive ordering system for restaurants that is based on NFC technology. Each meal and drink of the menu gets its own NFC tag, basically a sticker with an integrated chip. By using the developed Smart Pen, which is an NFC reader each guest receives at the entrance of the restaurant, he is able to scan the desired meals and drinks fast and easily, compile his order, and send it directly to the kitchen by pressing the button at the end of the Smart Pen. Beside that the kitchen staff is equipped with a tablet computer and the service staff with a pay station, so everyone is connected to each other.
