The main objective of our project is to fill water automatically by using Geneva mechanism. Geneva or Maltese cross mechanism is an indexing mechanism that converts continuous motion into intermittent motion. In our project we are using modified six slotted Geneva drive to fill water automatically without the usage of sensor. The rotating drive wheel is usually equipped with a pin that reaches into a slot located in the driven wheel. The driven wheel or Geneva drive consist of six slot that advances it by one step at a time. This mechanism is to control the rotating table slowly. And the cam is used to control the flow on & off of water automatically instead of using sensors. Geneva drive and cam are connected in the same shaft to obtain the process efficiently. Finally the rotating table which contains the water bottle container which receives the water at a periodic time without any usage of sensor.
