Automated Ordering with the PIORDER #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

CloseUp

This restaurant built its own automated ordering system, via MagPi:

Two years ago, Ehsan became frustrated at writing orders on pen and paper. Ehsan’s answer was to code and hack his way out.

The result is PiOrder, a fully automated EPOS (electronic point of sale) system. PiOrder comprises Raspberry Pis, several Pi Camera Modules, and a Pipsta thermal printer.

The waiting staff use large Kindle Fire tablets to take orders. Two smaller tablets are kept near the phones so staff can take orders over the telephone.

Step3 PiOrder

In the kitchen is a Raspberry Pi board hosting the Apache website. A program written in PHP and HTML is used to provide the webpages.
Apache is used to host the webpage used by the waiting staff to take orders. It also offers online ordering for takeaway customers.
Chefs are alerted to new orders via a speaker attached to the Raspberry Pi.

The Pipsta printer also prints a hard copy of the order, and a Camera Module takes a photograph of the order to ensure it has printed out correctly (and to act as a backup). More Camera Modules are used by managers to keep an eye on how busy the kitchen is.

Thermal Receipt PrinterAdd a mini printer to any microcontroller project with this very cute thermal printer. Thermal printers are also known as receipt printers, they’re what you get when you go to the ATM or grocery store. Now you can embed a little printer of your own into an enclosure. This printer is ideal for interfacing with a microcontroller, you simply need a 3.3V-5V TTL serial output from your microcontroller to print text, barcodes, bitmap graphics, even a QR code!
