What is Dining Flow?
Dining Flow is a project addressing to enhance diners’ and service providers’ experiences and to increase sustainability in Self Service Restaurants (SSR). We achieve the aim by offering to the service providers tangible data-driven decision support tools and solutions that emerge from studying the diners’ activities and experiences in conjunction with data obtained from SSR stakeholders, SSR equipment and surrounding environment (i.e. buildings and their users).

The project is coordinated by the Software Engineering Group within the Department of Computing.
