Phidgets Contests



From their website: "he RoboDose uses an industry standard controller to automate the process of an everyday problem. We took the provided Phoenix Contact Nanoline PLC starter kit and their Nano-Navigator software and produced what we believe could be the answer to an everyday issue. Our team worked through numerous design sessions in order to arrive at this year’s solution. Our team of two boys and three girls made the decision to solve the problem of the elderly forgetting to take, remembering when to take, and trying to recall how many of each medication to take. Our device was designed to eliminate the need of weekly/daily pill organizers and caregivers having to individually dispense and monitor prescriptions we created a product that could safely and securely dispense the proper dosages, multiple times a day. The machine was designed to notify caregivers or family members if proper dosages were not taken in a timely manner."
