I plan on giving updates on what I'm working on here, since I'm useless at writing blogs. I'm hoping i can stick to short regular updates.

Here's my cocktail machine. I'm currently writing the software for it!

The work on the cocktail robot slowly continues. A loadcell arrived in the post so im setting it up for glass detection and calibration of the pumps.

@IVData What will the process be for calibrating the pumps?


@jmwright given a density value for each ingredient, the loadcell can be used to calibrate how long the motor should be on to pour a certain amount. Needs to be done for a variety of motor speeds too because PWM % to flow rate is not linear.

@jmwright also it can detect when a glass is present so a drunk patron doesn't make the machine pour all over itself 🤣
