Implementation of Arduino-Based Counting System for Kuih Ros Production Yield
Keywords:Kuih Ros counting machine, IR sensor, Arduino counting system
Two technologies that have the potential to move the country's agro-food sector ahead are mechanization and automation. The technology's implementation will provide a consistent supply of high-quality products while lowering production costs, improving production rates, and lowering labour costs. In accordance with the current demand, this research aims to develop a counting system of Kuih Ros production which will be the extension of the Kuih Ros production machine. The system proposed a counting system to keep track the production rate of Kuih Ros before dispensed out. It involved the control of observation systems that ease product yield monitoring. The system is implemented using an infrared sensor (IR) which is embedded at the end of Kuih Ros machine dispenser for counting means. The liquid crystal display (LCD) will show the current amount and all the information regarding the total product gathered in Arduino. The hardware components required are IR sensor, LCD display and an Arduino microcontroller. Therefore, it provides provision for real-time monitoring of production by automatic synchronization of the system, which eases the counting process while reducing human error due to operation does not require human intervention. The results show the system is successfully developed in comparison to manual counting.
