Automatic Pet Feeder using Arduino

Today we are building an Arduino based Automatic Pet Feeder which can automatically serve food to your pet timely. It has a DS3231 RTC (Real Time Clock) Module, which used to set time and date on which your pet should be given food. So, by setting up the time according to your pet’s eating schedule, the device drop or fill the food bowl automatically. In this circuit, we are using a 16*2 LCD to display the ...

Analogue Sensors – Calculate the Nonlinearity Introduced by a Load or Pull Down Resistor

Have you ever had that terrible feeling that adding a load resistor or 'pull down' to your sensor is messing up all your analogue readings? Maybe you're wondering why we'd want to spoil a perfectly good circuit by putting in a load resistor at all? For many years I found that I would get strange, unpredictable, readings from my sensor related projects at the maximum and minimum locations when using analogue ...
