Linux Based Medication remainder
Medication mix-ups are extremely dangerous, to avoid this Linux based Speaking Medication Reminder can help to prevent these life-threatening mistakes. It first allows users to enter reminder inputs. The system takes input through the keyboard to accept various reminders with date and time and dosage. It then reminds patients to take the right medication at the right time.

System allows users to store their medication dates and time using raspberry pi. Also, users are allowed to enter the dosage of each reminder. Onset time the system gets the details and converts text to speech. The system now speaks out the medication reminder at fed time intervals. This allows for a fully automated medication reminder system for patients.

Project Description:

  1. Raspberry Pi 3 B: Raspberry Pi is a Microprocessor which has 40 pins with 27 GPIO pins, it has a 1 Giga Bytes of RAM and a SD card slot for the storage or the ROM,it can be used as a mini computer for low computing operations, it has a dual band LAN, faster Ethernet, Bluetooth, it also has USB and HDMI ports for connecting devices. This device can be used as a server which we are doing in this project.
  2. Micro SD card: You will need a minimum of 8 gigabytes SD card for this project, this SD card is used as the ROM of the raspberry pi. Use 32 Gigabyte or 64 Gigabytes of
  3. Display: You can use any kind of display for the project, like monitors, TV or any size display that fits your requirement to configure the Pi.
  4. Power Supply: Raspberry Pi needs a power supply of 5V and 2A Micro USB type.
  5. Mouse and keyboard: You will need this to control, monitor, and to configure the Pi.
  6. Pi Camera: Use the Pi camera to capture still images, live streaming and for video recording.
  7. Speakers:You can use any speakers for playing the remainder tone and the text to speach converted audio bit.

Project Implementation:

  1. Install the Raspbian OS into the SD card, and boot the Raspberry Pi.
  2. Install Python IDE 3 in Raspberry Pi.
  3. Install the Audio dependencies in order to use the speakers.
  4. Install text to speach converting dependencies.
  5. Connect your Display, keypad to the raspberry pi.
  6. Write a Python program with which you can add the medication inputs like which medicine to be taken at which time and even the date.
  7. The Rasberry Pi should also be programmed for remainding or playing the text to speach converted audio bit to remaind the patients.

Skyfi Labs Projects
Project Brief:The Raspberry Pi when configured and all the required software has been installed then the Pi is ready to be used as Medication remainder with which the patient can take the prescribed medicine at right time.

Software requirements:

  1. Raspbian OS(Debian Linux): Raspbian operating systems are based on Linux, Raspberry pi are also compatible with Windows and IOS but prefer any Linux based OS
  2. Python IDE 3: Python IDE 3 is compiler where you can write and compile python program.

Programing Language:

    Linux (terminal commands)
