These days people are more connected than ever however we are experiencing less and less physical interaction with each other. One day while giving my dog T-Bone a scratch behind the ears I came up with this silly idea. A robot which can give your dog a pat on the head and than reward him with a tasty treat and best of all the dog can also reciprocate the same attention. It is called the “IOT Robot People/Pet Affectionator”. While this demo is not utilizing IOT (Internet of Things) it would be very easy to construct two of these and network them across the internet. In this project I am utilizing an Arduino Nano, two H-Bridge motor drivers, two geared Pittman motors and two geared hobby motors. . My three nieces Kyra, Hailey and Lauren are madly in love with our dog T-Bone and they want him to star in his very own YouTube video.
