Assisting minor everyday pet chores

  • ABSTRACT

    This process explores the possibility of physical connectedness while asks the question: How can we control distant objects? The simple cat-feeding device that we built offers a basic platform using an Arduino board, two servos and sensors that are controlled by a mobile device over a wireless network. A nonverbal communication between the pet and the pet owner is manifested by animated icons on the mobile device and as sounds from both the mobile device and the prototype. The device generates a pre-recorded sound loop each time the user shake the device. At the same time, the food package placed on the prototype get shocked and generates a natural sound by the content inside. The prototype shows that we can provide a quick solution for a simple problem in people’s daily life.
