TitleAutomated Medicine Sorter/Counter/Cutter
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe purpose of this project is to design and build an automated pill sorter that sorts pills into seven-day pill planners with AM and PM containers. Additionally, the project will utilize a cutter system to sort pills by half dose as specified by the user and store the other half for future use. The project will also allow users to input pill medication names, dosages, and regimens via an onboard and computer-based user interface. These actions will be controlled by a NORDIC Semiconductor microcontroller which will retain pill data, operate the user interface, and control when doses are sorted via a master/minion system with two Arduino microcontrollers which will control the sorting and cutting systems, respectively. The project is also designed with user modularity in mind, allowing the user to sort as few as one type of pill or as many as six types. Finally, the cutter system being used has already been designed by a previous team. This cutter system was designed to cut pills in half with a minimum amount of mass loss.
