Many elderly people often forget to take their medication. Not only is adherence and consistency a difficult thing but being able to read the label and input your own reminders on your calendar is a hassle.

What it does

Our app quickly and seamlessly scans a prescription label, reads aloud the important information, and automatically adds it to your profile for future voice reminders.

How I built it

We used Android Studio to develop the app. Firebase and the ML Kit for the Text Recognition and the Realtime Database functionality.

Challenges I ran into

The user interface was a challenge for us. Also, several people collaborating and editing the same codebase was difficult to manage.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We developed an idea that can help the elderly adhere to their medication.

What I learned

Communication and cooperation between teammates.
