  1. This research paper describes the design of a pill dispensing device that can assist people with physical or cognitive limitations in taking their prescribed medications. The design is based on the communication between two devices for the purpose of dispensing pills at a scheduled time and identifying if these pills had been properly consumed within a specified time frame. The two devices are based on Arduino RP2040 connect microcontrollers and implement several sensors in the aid of dispensing and detecting of pill consumption. The sensors implemented are an IMU, and distances sensors, such as an ultrasonic sensor and an IR proximity sensor, additionally a real time clock module and stepper motor have been included in the design for the scheduling and dispensing of the pills. The two devices will communicate using Bluetooth for low energy devices (BLE) and the purpose of the devices is to provide aid to the intended target audience in achieving a healthier lifestyle.

  2. This research paper describes the design of a device that can assist seniors or people with physical or cognitive limitations to take their prescribed medications that are in the form of pills on time while verifying that such pills have been actually consumed. The design consists of a portable smart pill dispenser that will rest on a base, allowing it to dispense pills into a smart cup. The smart pill dispenser uses a stepper motor to rotate to a desired pills based on a specific time slot/day of the week. The smart cup attached to the pill box uses an accelerometer, gyroscope, and an IR proximity sensor to detect if a user is taking the medication by how much the smart cup is lifted and tilted. The smart cup will inform the smart pill dispenser if the pills are properly consumed or not, thus, allowing the device to potentially aid the patients to have a healthier life.

    Abstract The proliferation of smart home Internet of things (IoT) devices presents unprecedented challenges for preserving privacy within the home. In this paper, we demonstrate that a passive network observer (e.g., an Internet service provider) can infer private in-home activities by analyzing Internet traffic from commercially available smart home devices even when the devices use end-to-end transport-layer encryption . We evaluate common approaches for defending against these types of traffic analysis attacks, including firewalls, virtual private networks, and independent link padding, and find that none sufficiently conceal user activities with reasonable data overhead. We develop a new defense, “stochastic traffic padding” (STP), that makes it difficult for a passive network adversary to reliably distinguish genuine user activities from generated traffic patterns designed to look like user interactions. Our analysis provides a theoretical bound on an adversary’s ability to accurately detect genuine user activities as a function of the amount of additional cover traffic generated by the defense technique.
