Status

  • Still planning out etc, but received the pump!



Goals

We want to try out a simple 1 bottle bot, and continue from there if successful.

Research Material

Requirements

  • Be able to serve a measured drink
  • Do it reliably, repetitive, within ~5 seconds
  • Alert when bottle is empty
  • Low maintenance, preferably no maintenance at all (except for restocking booze obviously)

Part list

  • Tubing (hydrofobic if possible)
  • Airpump (1-way if that exists, to prevent evaporation)

We just ordered; http://www.ebay.nl/itm/065-1x-Mini-Pump-water-pump-fuel-pump-air-pump-Liquid-pump-3-12V-for-RC-Boat-/200812773498?pt=Radio_Control_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2ec15fc07a#ht_1306wt_956

  • Alternatively: peristaltic pump
  • Rubber plugs, conic shaped, maybe with holes for tubing? -> maybe standard lab equipment?
  • Electronic Kitchenscale
  • Arduino to interface with the former
  • Relay to switch the pump
  • Some pincher or valve to close and open the tube exiting the bottle (to keep CO2 and evaporation inside when idle)
  • Bottle of Booze
