Abstract:

The proponents made a system that can monitor the amount of food and water in reservoir and in bowl. The system can automatically refill the water bowl of the dog by using water pump and load cell sensor. The system can also refill the food bowl of dog depending on the input of user by using GSM module, and the DIY food mechanism. The proponents used Raspberry pi computer to act as the main controller that is responsible for running the program and controls all the module needed for the system to work, all the sensors needed HX711 to convert the analog signal given by the sensor to a digital signal that can be recognize by the raspberry pi computer. The proponents used relay module to act as a switch for the water pump which has an AC supply. The proponents interviewed veterinarian to know the amount of food the dog needs based on its size. The system can make the lives of dog owners, who are too busy to feed their pet, more convenient.
