Abstract

This contribution describes a novel approach for developing a medication assistance system, namely a pill dispenser. The approach supports mobile and stationary use and applies IoT features for the system to be interconnected and remain synchronized. Based on a user survey and a literature review, functional requirements for the pill dispenser have been derived and use case scenarios conceptualized, followed by a rudimentary software and hardware development.
