More people prefer to dine out nowadays and the food and beverage industry has to revolutionise its way of serving customers in order to remain sustainable to the growing population. This research aims at designing an Automated Food Delivery System to overcome this problem. The new proposed system structure consists of colour lines that are drawn on the restaurant ground and they link all tables to the kitchen serving as a guiding track; a robot that is in sync with the ordering system will serve. When customers place their order through the ordering system, the system will send the order to the kitchen. Once the dish is prepared, a signal will be sent to the robot then robot will then deliver it to the specific table and return to the kitchen and send a feedback signal to the ordering system as a confirmation of delivery. This system is yet to be popular in the food and beverage industry and there are several technical difficulties to be overcome. However, once the technical difficulties can be overcomed and improvements are made, the automated food delivery system using a robot is a possible solution to the issues faced by thousand of restaurant owners.
