Case Study - Animal Feeding automation using Arduino based PLC

This project is designed to make an animal feeding system for all kinds of use; cattle raising, farms, horse stables and many more. The feeding process will be automatized using a PLC which controls the feeders and would have a track of the food to settle up the periods, quantities and food kinds.
