Abstract

We took a standard off-the-shelf espresso machine and integrated a microcontroller, an RFID-reader, and a Bluetooth module. We can control the machine from a com- puter or a cellphone using these extensions. With the RFID-reader, the machine can automatically detect a cup being inserted; it is also possible to distinguish between cups. We have equipped the cups in our group with suitable RFID-tags. Coffee cups are shared, therefore users associate cups with them by using their personal, electronic doorkey. This action personalizes a cup with a user’s preferences. Before cups are put into the dishwasher, they are swiped over a second RFID-reader to remove the user association. By default, cups stay personalized for a predefined time, the corresponding lease is extended every time the cup is used.
