How I made an AI to watch my cats poop #AI #ML #RaspberryPi @estefanniegg @Raspberry_Pi
Estefannie basically made a poop monitor for her cats to help her determine if the cats had ingested plastic, which is bad for their health.
I wanted my project to be mobile so that I could see my cats pooping from anywhere in the house. So I decided to make a website to be hosted in the Pi. This way anyone on the same network (my wifi) can see it from any device connected to my WiFi from anywhere in my house.
To do that, I used a Raspberry Pi to run a Node.JS server (back-end) and host a website (front-end) to display all the sensor data.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
