Abstract: In the present paper describe how to build a microcontroller based smart medicine time indication box. This medicine box is help for user who regularly take drugs or supplements and also nurses who take care of the older or patients. The medicine box is programmable that allows nurses or users to specify the pill quantity and day to take pills, and the serve times for each day. Smart medicine time indication box contains separate sub-boxes. Therefore, nurses or users can set information of these sub-boxes for different pills. When the pill quantity and time have been set, the medicine box will remind users or patients to take pills using sound and light. The specific number of pills needs to be taken will be displayed by a seven segment led display placed on the corresponding sub-box. Compared with the old-fashioned pill box that needs user or nurse to load the box every day or every week. This smart medicine time indication box would significantly reduce nurses or users burden on frequently preloading pills for patients or users.
