Abstract: The traditional/present way of juice making involves more labor as well as time conception. The customers have to wait for a long time to get their juice/shake ready. While considering about the hygiene and quality whatever the environment is good the quality won’t be unique and clean. To ensue hygiene and quality with no labor we have designed our automation system. This idea mainly focuses on the autonomous fresh juice maker and delivery machine with customizations (based on the customers preference). In our system it is fully automated using micro-controller, pumps, solenoid valves, pipes, containers, mixers, filters and some sensors like (load censor / force sensors). By integrating micro controller with the other devices and sensors based on the measured time the functions can be operated. Some customized software’s are also enabled in this system to have a user-friendly interface. Thus, the system enables to prepare fresh juice as per the customer's requirement in sequential manner. The order is placed through the input display, which displays the fruit or vegetables available, its corresponding price and offers of the day. The quantity, sugar level, temperature, milk/water can be specified by the customer in the order through the input display and the mode of payment can be cash or card or online. Once the order has been placed the autonomous juice maker prepares the shake/juice by adding weighted quantity of fruit, measured quantity of sugar, milk/water, ice as per the order to the blender. After loading the ingredients, blender blends it smoothly and filters the juice/shake. The filtered contents are transferred to the cups. This whole process takes approximately only 2-3 minutes. So, many juices can be sold in a minimum time. Upon implementation of this technology, we can reduce the need for man power in the preparation of juice in stores and the risk of communicable disease and also price of the juice. Hence this system would change the surroundings in accordance with technology.
