A arduino based machine to prevent over dosage and under dosage

Many people don't track the time very well. They either take too much medicine or too little medicine in this false sense of time. The idea is that a machine could serve as a reminder for certain medicines as well dispense the right amount.


Last week, we hammered out the last bugs in our code. we didn't get a chance to test it though. This week, we tested it today and found out all the bugs in our new code. After fixing those, all that's left is the physical body and testing the app.

    We went under did a whole lot of stuff:

    -Made a timer which actually works

    -Fixed all program bugs that we found

    -The LCD isn't working, we don't know why

    -Waiting for proper body

    -the program is finished, the body remains.

  • Couplings

    We 3d printed couplings for the motors and dispenser. Project going well. We also  fixed bugs with our motors. We modeled more couplings and await THE MIGHTY 3D PRINTING.

    • We added a servo (for rotational power) and a stepper(for accuracy).
    • The servo we shall use to knock off a pill on a stack. 
    • The stepper shall spin a linear actuator which shall control a syringe. 
    • The servo (which needed regulator voltage), we added to a different 5V whereas the stepper uses native 5V of the Arduino Mega.
    •  We also use an LCD to display the timer ( 10 seconds ), we also made a startup system.
    • We created a Persian wheel sort of system where everything leads up.
    • We were thinking about adding a clock and a logic timer.
    • Drone delivery is also a possibility.
    • Our system is as reliable as an Arabian horse.
    • Its usability will attract many people like an ice cream truck.

    New Updates:

    Aluminium sheet was brought in, we cut it up and transformed it into a thin sheet measuring 38.5 cm in length and 6 cm. We then cut thin aluminium strips and turned them into brackets to hold the syringe it looked like this:

    We also added a clock to our lcd for convenience.  We in addition created a coupling in Tinkercad and are awaiting 3D printing at this moment.
