Smart Coffee Machine Pump Controlled by Raspberry Pi & HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor

Tue Nov 19, 2019 12:34 pm

In theory, every time you go to the coffee machine for your morning cup, there’s only a one-in-twenty chance you’ll have to fill the water tank. In practice, however, it seems that the machine somehow finds a way to always put this chore on you. The more you want coffee, the more likely you are to get the dreaded “fill the water tank” message. My colleagues feel the same way about this. Being the nerds that we are, we decided to implement the technology that would put an end to this.

Great project!

You just need another pump and a bigger tank to keep the water cooler bottle full :D

Great project!

You could get a reverse osmosis filter setup and remove the bottle altogether. No pump needed either.....
