What it does

Our project uses machine learning to track when pill bottles are taken and put back into a cabinet.

How we built it

Using a raspberry pi with a pi camera paired with OpenCV and a flask web app.

Challenges we ran into

OpenCV literally took 8 hours to install on the raspberry pi and many other frameworks were impossible to get working.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

A beautiful web app and a working product

What we learned

Machine vision

What's next for Down the Hatch
