People love their pets and vice versa, but there are times you need to leave your pets at home for long durations alone and this is a problematic issue. Well we here propose to design a doggy daycare robot that can monitor as well as feed the dogs or cats in a timely manner.
The Raspberry Pi powered Daycare Robot has the following key features
- Remote Monitoring of your pets over IOT
- Speaking to pets by Voice Commands
- 2x Containers: For Dog/Cat Food and Water
- Timely Feeding of Cat/Dog Food and Water through Feeding Tray
- Main Modules of Robot Well Protected from Naughty Pets using Steel Mesh
The Robot is an IOT Based robot that is capable of taking care you your pets alone at home. The robot is integrated with a camera that allows for live streaming over IOT platform to get on demand footage of home. The robot takes monitoring far beyond a security camera as you can control the robot online over internet and move through your house any time you want.
This allows you to be with your pets no matter where you are. The robot is also integrated with a speaker that speaks out to your dogs/cats allowing you to shout at them for any wrongdoings or call them when it is feeding time. An LCD display is also provided as a reference for the messages to be displayed.
The robot is a 3 wheeled drive system with a feeding tray and 2 x steel bins
Bin 1 Stores Dog Food/Cat Food
Bin 2 Stores Water
The robot dispenses appropriate amount of food and water in feeding tray as instructed by user online and then slides open the feeding tray, also it calls out your dog/cat by name to inform about feeding time. Once the pet has eaten it closes the feeding tray. All of this can be monitored online by the pet owner.
This entire system is controlled by a raspberry pi controller that allows for efficient controlling of all robot functionalities.
