Paper by D. Karagiannis and K. S. Nikita receives the Best Poster Award in the IEEE SmartIoT 2020 Conference, Beijing, China.

A paper entitled: “Design and Development of a 3D Printed IoT Portable Pillbox for Continuous Medication Adherence” was presented on August 15, 2020, in the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Smart Internet of Things (IEEE SmartIoT 2020) and received the Best Poster Award. The paper proposes a 3D printed smart Pillbox with a unique foldable design that allows increased pill capacity in a small size and provides portability, unlike available bulky devices. A range of advanced functionalities are supported by an IoT platform that enables continuous medication adherence -during indoor and outdoor activities, remote environment monitoring through appropriate sensors, and real-time medication adjustment according to potential interactions between patient’s drugs and food or supplements consumed by the patient.
