"The study of medicine is evolving just like any other scientific field in the world; as the study is evolving, it is becoming more versatile and with growing fields and study, testing, and experimentation. The progression of these studies has helped compose and construct new types of medications for different types of diseases. With the improvement of medicine, we shed the light on another aspect, the dispenser of the pills, including the time, days, and doses. The idea behind this project is to create a fully functional medicine holder that can dispense the correct medicine at its specified time. The medicine holder is mainly targeted towards the elder citizens, the blind and the disabled, where this is at least one feature within the smart medicine holder that aids each targeted population of this project. Hard thinking and planning went into the special features of this medicine holder in order to maintain the highest standards and the most effective performance. The smart medicine holder is equipped with a sound system that alerts that patient before and during the time of the specified medicine; as well as a complex system that assures that no mistake will occur when dispensing multiple pills of different types of pills at the same time. The medicine holder is also made with special type of material that is known to be antibacterial; this feature guarantees that the pills are kept clean and hygienic as well as many other features that are discussed within the report. The smart medicine holder is able to dispense different types of pills from different containers at the same time. The team worked on making the overall system very user-friendly so that no user encounters difficulty programming the settings to their specified medical regime. The main purpose of this project is to organize the patient’s dose intake by alerting the user when the medicine’s time comes. The holder also organizes the pill intake by dispensing the exact number of pills at their specified time. This in turn will avoid mixing up of the pills or neglecting the prescriptions. "
