Abstract: Keeping pets takes many commitments. This includes keeping them company, showing your concerns and of course, feeding them on time and in the correct way. However, not everyone is a pet expert taking care of your pet’s diet can be hard and time consuming. One of the top health concerns of pets are overeating and obesity. Especially at younger age, they are usually satisfied with however much is given to them. Many adult pets are fed unscientifically that later may cause short lifespan. Another problem of feeding pets is that owners might not always be home regularly. Being occupied by personal plans knowing that they still have a starving little fellow at home to be taken care of is always a concern that bothers owners. The third concern that we want to deal with is the fact that there hasn’t been any product on the market right now that is able to dispense different foods for different kinds of pets. However, pets themselves might not necessarily recognize the potential health problems of eating the wrong food. Therefore, we want to take care of owners’ concern of feeding by building a phone controlled automatic pet feeder that can dispense the correct amount of food on time, based on the type of animal that’s demanding it. We chose this project because pet keeping is a time consuming responsibility and we want to provide convenience to owners by helping them feed their pets easily and smartly. Owners will be able to feed the correct amount of food to their pets by setting it on the phone app. The information will be transferred to the PCB via Ethernet, which will send signals to food dispensing gates.
