Intelligent Medicine Box, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Health-IoT


Presently the population of world is rising rapidly, providing proper healthcare to the elderly and ill people becomes an important and serious issue and it draws high attention from medical, academic and industrial fields of the society. The Internet of Things (IoT) drives the evolution of the Internet, and is regarded as a great potential to improve quality of life for the surging number of elderly people, significantly. As Android operating system gains huge popularity nowadays, it is a trend to make use of it for the wider access of IoT utility. This project presents a health monitoring system prototype based on IoT, with the increasing use of sensors by medical devices, remote and continuous monitoring of a patient’s health. This network of sensors and other mobile communication devices, referred to as the Internet of Things for Medical Devices (IoT-MD), is poised to revolutionize the functioning of the healthcare industry. Untimed medicine administration can always show adverse effects on the health of the patients. The proposed system is designed to help such patients to take the required medicine in the right proportion at the right time. The basic ideology is integrating the principle of IoT with weight-based slot sensing on a normal medicine box. To make it more simpler, it is inbuilt with a Wi-Fi module for alerting the patient and also the chemist at the needed instant using IoT002E.
