Medbot+ Automated Timely Medicine Delivery Robot

About the project

MedBot+ is an automated and timely medicine delivery robot. This robot will start at the designated time from parking, will go the kitchen, ask for water, go to my Grandfather, tells which medicines are to be taken, waits for him to finish, goes back to parking spot, starts at next shift.

Situation : Grandpa is not feeling so well, but he misses to take his medicines on time, even though reminders are in place, as procrastination causes delay or total miss.

Solution : Nishka and Neil came up with the idea of this robot, which would never miss giving medicines on time.

Process : Robot starts from its parking at designated time --> Goes to kitchen and asks for water --> Then it goes to Grandpa and tells him which medicines are to be taken --> Waits till he takes his medicines --> Returns back to parking

This process is repeated whenever medicines are scheduled.

This is me Neil, a young tech enthusiast! I make quality YouTube videos on my channel (CeneVspeed's Nish n Neil Rock!!) about Windows tips and tricks & custom-made robots. My goal is to make robots that could impact the world and make it a better place! I make robots by myself using Arduino. I learn on my own without going to classes. Even though I do not have a lot of materials and 3D printers, I use what I have. As the saying goes "It's not about what you have, it's about what you make out of it!"
