Abstract: 

Our aim with Axis is to minimize the drug noncompliance in seniors and other potentially disadvantaged demographics (such as rural or Aboriginal communities).  We propose a device that can effectively determine and administer the correct pills and dosage at the appropriate day for a single week. This will be accomplished using camera sensors and character recognition API to extract required information from the prescription label. The internal hardware structure will be designed to sort the pills by day, pass any excess medication for that week, and dispense accordingly.

Description: 

Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
