PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main goal of this project is to develop a medication reminder using PIC microcontroller that is used to remind about medicines to be taken at a prescribed time. It also enables  a buzzing sound and also displays the name of the medicine to be taken at that time.

A patient can store respective time to take a particular medicine through a matrix keypad which is interfaced to the PIC16f series microcontroller. The proposed system uses a real time clock (RTC) to keep a track of the timings, automatically.

Whenever the set time is equal to the real time, the microcontroller generates output to actuate the buzzer to remind the user and also display the medicine name on the LCD display.

The future scope of this project can be implemented by using a GSM technology, so that the patient receives a reminder via SMS on his/her cell phone about the medicine he/she has to take. Also a provision to change the name of medicine can be incorporated by interfacing the device with a PC or EEPROM (non-volatile memory).

Q & A
Q:  Can the user feed the medicine name?
A:  No, because the name of medicine is already stored in the program.
Q:  Is a buzzer or some alert provided as reminder for medicine to be taken on time?
A:  Yes, a buzzer is provided to give the alert signal as reminder.
Q:  How to set the time?
A:  A numeric keypad is provided to set the time.
Q:  What is RTC?
A:  RTC stands for Real Time Clock. It provides time and date reference along with memory back up.
