ABSTRACT

In this paper, we propose a medication reminder system using IoT platforms and products to help old adults keep track of their medication schedule, one of 10 Korean instrumental activities in daily living (K-IADL). An interworking architecture based on the oneM2M standard platform is designed to allow various IoT products to be connected each other through interworking proxy entities. A prototype system for the medication reminder service is developed, which consists of a pair of off-the-shelf pill bottle and container box embedded with an NFC tag and reader respectively, three types of actuators including a LIFX LED lightbulb, Musaic speaker, Microsoft Band 2, and smartphone applications. The experiment shows that our medication reminder system can make alarms for old adults to take their pills appropriately considering where they are and when they have food inferred from data collected from sensors including ultrasonic sensor and rice cooker, fostering them to keep their medication routine.
