Automation

This is a catalog of all the companies involved in the automation trend as well as the steps they are changing and what they are doing. The steps are divided into 1) ordering food 2) making food 3) giving the food to the customer. Automated is a process where robots do everything, Partial is a mix and Person is the tasks humans still perform (for now). However, if a machine requires no help it will be labeled as Fully Automated. The Link will take you to the article which discusses the method, technology or restaurant.
