Automated pet feeder is a product that would replace manual feeding method which can be set at a required feeding amount and feeding time. Innovation of pet feeder is used to overcome forgetful of the pet owner to feed their pet and to avoid extra spending expenses by leaving them at a pet hotel. The objective of this project is to design and develop a mechanism for pet feeder. In this project, Arduino is used as the microcontroller to control the mechanism and to operate the system with a

Furthermore prototype testing on the mechanism with experimental and theoretical was conducted, the result of the analysis is analyzed. The analysis is providing the path to make sure the final concept of the pet feeder is reached. 1.
