Designing a vending machine

Building a vending machine requires more attention to designing that usual. In general, we can design a vending machine system with the following parts:

  • Machine cabinet
  • Product storage
  • Central processor machine
  • Payment system
  • User interface and experience

In this book, we won't explore machine cabinet and product storage for vending machines. You can review vending machine spare parts on this site:
