Do you have that one uncle that always pour the perfect shot at family events? The problem we ran into was that our uncle Bob isn't always there to pour our shots. This is why we created a devices that will pour you those same strong shots every time just like uncle Bob would.
To use the Uncle Bob Shot you just have to place your glass on the platform and press the button. The button on the front will trigger the solenoid to release the liquor or mixed drink into your glass. The load cell will start to calculate the amount of fluid in your glass and display the amount in ounces on the LCD. Once the proper amount is in your glass, a signal will be sent back to the solenoid to stop dispensing the fluid.
As displayed in the video our load cell would never read any values above or below zero, no matter the pressure placed on it. This caused a chain reaction in the rest of the system. Due to no values being calculated the LCD could not display anything. With the LCD and the Load cell constantly reading zero, the solenoid always thought the glass was empty and would continually dispense the liquid. It is our belief that the load cell was faulty which created this problem in the rest of our project.
