Could you help me modify my no name four meal rotating pet feeder to be arduino controlled?
This is ithttp://www.amazon.com/Automatic-Feeder-Electronic-Programmable-display/dp/B002X73CBC
it ran on 4 c batteries. It has a gear system in the bottom and it uses a encoder (is that the name of the LED sensor that tells when there is something between the two pieces?) to tell where each bowl begins and the first one has a contact switch that is broken when it approaches.
I'd also like to be able to put a button in to advance to the next bowl , but NOT reset the FEEDING time (so I can fill all the bowls at the same time if I want)
is this do-able? I can do the wiring, but I am crap with the programming, could you help?
