Table-Top Restaurant Ordering System Background Our project focuses on the development of a table top restaurant ordering system named TROS. We hope to integrate a new level of technology into the dining experience. Our product seeks to streamline the interaction between customer, server and restaurant staff while remaining simple and easy to use.
Table-Top Restaurant Ordering System Background continued… The TROS seeks to integrate the connection between many technologies currently in use today, such as: Point of Sale (POS) Automated Ordering Kiosks In-restaurant entertainment (e.g. trivia games, etc…) Online ordering capability
Table-Top Restaurant Ordering System Project Details Our final product will consist of a working prototype of a multi-touch, table-top ordering system. Hardware consisting of: Multi-touch screen in table Computer powering the interface Multiple LCD displays for receiving orders Networked server Credit card reader
Table-Top Restaurant Ordering System Project Details continued… Software consisting of: Multi-touch user interface Software running the server-side applications POS software Platforms: Database (e.g. MySQL) Unix server Windows based –or- Linux based OS

Table-Top Restaurant Ordering System Economics We remain unsure of the project costs simply because we have not yet done the necessary research to determine what materials we might use. Whatever we would choose would have to remain within the type of budget that a restaurant would be willing to pay. There would also by some recurring costs for the system, besides just the initial cost.
