Elderly people who suffer from declining memory are likely at risk of forgetting the functions or dosage of their prescribed medication. Accidental consumption of wrong medicines may have fatal consequences. Near-Field Communication (NFC) based medicine identification systems have the advantage of being relatively fast, reliable and cost-effective. The proposed NFC-MedIDS endeavors to provide an easy and effective solution to ensure the elderly gets the accurate information either on their smartphones or Television (TV) screens prior to consuming it. The NFC-MedIDS consists of the NFC-MedID box which work with the NFC chip-embedded medicine bottles, NFC-enabled smartphones and/or a large display such as the TV. Information on medicines can be instantly retrieved by tapping the medicine bottle on the NFC-MedID box or the NFC smartphone. The information helps the elderly to ensure they take the right medicine in the right dosage every time.
