Digital Dog Food

Being a pet owner requires a multi-year daily commitment, to provide and care for the pet. While most pet owners are able to make adjustments in their lifestyle to accommodate the needs of an animal, there are, at times, unavoidable conflicts which prevent us from fulfilling our responsibilities. The primary challenges dog owners face are providing food and water, a place to eliminate waste, and exercise. This project solves the first, and arguably most important, challenge of providing food and water to a pet when the pet owner cannot physically do so. Through the utilization of a computer microcontroller and the development of an Android application, this proof of concept system demonstrates that anyone can feed their dog remotely with just the touch of a button on their phone.
