Abstract:
    The idea of the project is to realize IoT implementation of robotic arm(s) that shall carry out activities related to cooking in kitchen, approximately same as a human would do thus automating kitchen
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    We have identified two areas of need in society, first one is "Home Automation" and second, People who either don't know how to cook or don't have enough time to cook due to their busy schedules or people living independently. On broader scale the idea may be implemented in automated restaurants.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   People seeking Home Automation, Bachelors living independently, working men & women and Completely Automated Restaurants can be stated as key stakeholders and targeted audience.
How will the solution works
    The project consists of two modules; a robotic system consisting of Two 6 DOF Robot Arms, Sensors, Camera, Arduino and Raspberry Pi (as control center), & an android application providing interface to user for initiating commands. At abstract level, user may select a recipe from list of available recipes and give command to initiate cooking via Android Application. Raspberry Pi will receive command from app and will run automated scripts to control robotic movements and present a cooked recipe.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In Pakistan there is no competitor as of now. However, internationally Japan has developed certain systems but of limited scope. A company of UK going by the name of "Moley" intends to release similar product for consumer market by 2018 with estimated price starting from 10,000 pounds.
