Automated Raspberry Pi powered pill dispenser
Remembering to take the right number of pills at the right time can be stressful, particularly for those who are elderly or very sick. This automated pill dispenser makes managing medicine easier: the Raspberry Pi connects a pill dispenser and GP, who can programme the administration of the drugs through a website. Correct dosages drop out of the Raspberry Pi controlled pill dispenser at the specified times. Meanwhile, if sensors detect pills haven’t moved once dispensed, an alert is sent to a family member who can remind them.
PA Consulting Group challenged schools, universities and inventors to use the Raspberry Pi to make the world a better place.
Winners of the competition will be announced March 20 at PA’s Cambridge Technology Centre.
