Title (EN) INTERACTIVE MENU SYSTEM FOR RESTAURANTS
(FR) MENU INTERACTIF POUR RESTAURANTS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An interactive menu system allows restaurant customers to order food items without requiring a waiter or waitress. A terminal with screen display is provided a dining table. Through a graphic user interface, at list of food items are displayed on the screen display. The customer selects the desired food items via a touch screen. When all of the desired food items are selected, the order is confirmed. The order is then sent electronically to a terminal located in the kitchen area where the order is printed out from a printer. The kitchen personnel prepare the food per the printed order.
(FR)Ce principe de menu interactif permet aux clients d'un restaurant de commander des mets sans avoir à recourir à un serveur ou à une serveuse. Les tables de la salle à manger sont équipées d'un terminal avec dispositif afficheur. Sur ce dispositif afficheur s'affiche, par le biais d'une interface utilisateur graphique, une liste d'aliments. Le client choisit les mets désirés au moyen d'un écran tactile. La commande est confirmée lorsque tous les mets désirés sont choisis. Cette commande est alors transmise par voie électronique à un terminal se trouvant dans les cuisines et est imprimée. Le personnel de cuisine prépare alors le met figurant sur la commande imprimée.
