Abstract

The objective was to design and prototype a fully automated robotic kiosk for serving fresh, made-to-order meals. The team researched the various mechanical, electrical, and software components necessary to apply assembly line technology from large-scale food-processing plants to a small-footprint kiosk to automate the role of a traditional sandwich shop. This project also investigated the additional capability needed to scale the concept to a production-ready product which meets food safety standards as well as the needs of franchise owners. This prototype addresses the current demands of the restaurant industry by reducing labor costs and combating foodborne illness by reducing human contact with food.
