Dog Treat Dispenser

Automated dog treat dispenser

June 11, 2015

In an effort to show off how a load cell and amplifier (HX711) work, I made an automated dog treat dispenser that distributes treats whenever weight was detected on a platform. The actual dispenser is a modified doggy treat gumball machine. I tore off the lever arm and replaced it with a servo, and I used an Arduino Pro Mini to read the load cell’s value and control the servo.
