Recently, the number of senior citizens who are living alone and taking medicine is increasing due to population aging. Since these people have many risks of incorrect dosing, their caretakers living at a distance are concerned about their health. Therefore, we developed iMec (intelligent medicine case) and propose iMec system that is composed of iMec and ubiquitous sensors. The system can support correct dosing of recipient and dosing monitoring of their caretakers. The iMec is a medicine case that not only detects medicine in the medicine case by image processing but also notifies about dosing timing and dosage by touch display and speaker. The ubiquitous sensors assist the iMec to decide dosing timing. We have confirmed the validity of the image processing methods by experiments.
