Internet of Things (IoT), Order Management Systems, QR Code, Restaurant, Food Service


The dining sector in developing countries faces numerous challenges, including inefficiencies in order handling, resource management, and ensuring food quality and customer privacy. Traditional methods often lead to delays, errors, and dissatisfaction. This paper proposes a quick-witted, intelligent order-handling system utilizing the Internet of Things (IoT) to address these challenges and enhance the overall dining experience. We present a comprehensive approach to developing and implementing an IoT-based automated order-handling system tailored to restaurants' specific needs and challenges in developing countries, highlighting the importance of technology in enhancing operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. The proposed automated secure order-handling system using IoT demonstrates significant potential for improving efficiency and customer satisfaction in the dining sector. By addressing common problems through advanced technology, this system offers a sustainable solution that enhances the dining experience while ensuring food orders' validity, quality, and privacy. We analyzed the potential impact of implementing such a system in developing countries, focusing on economic and operational benefits.
