Project Description

This project implemented a smart, cloud-connected, ML driven Mailbox for the home. This project leveraged essentially all of the components on the PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit: PSoC 6 of course to process motion sensor data and drive the TFT display, alerting that people are at the Mailbox, on-board Wi-Fi/Bluetooth radio to transmit to an iOS mobile app via BLE as well as send data to AWS IoT Core to then interface with other AWS Cloud and Amazon services such as Kinesis, S3, Lambda Functions, etc – and the on-board F-RAM was used for data-logging as well. A ML model was also built up using TensorFlow and Amazon SageMaker Studio to detect if and what type of dog is at the Smart Mailbox.

Project Description

This project recognized the benefits that IoT devices can have on an aging population that needs to take multiple different types of medication throughout the day – which can be incredibly confusing and deserves some automation. This Smart Pill Dispenser project create an Alexa skill that when initiated, dispensed a particular pill with a small Servo Motor driven by PSoC 6. PSoC 6 in this project also drives a graphical display that displays which pills have been provided to the patient during the day so far.
