Electrical and Biomedical Engineering:
Electrical Engineering: Electrical engineering is involved in different types of interests all over the world. It contains digital logics and circuits. Electrical engineering also maximizes the battery life of future apps. Electrical Engineering was an essential part of our project. Without the knowledge of electrical engineering or the concept of how wiring and powering works, this project would not have been a success after all.
Biomedical Engineering: Biomedical engineering is useful not only for general uses, but also to enhance life. Biomedical engineering enhances and extends the quality of people’s life and it is not very easy. Biomedical engineering goes hand in hand with electrical engineering. We used biomedical engineering in this project to create a system that dispenses medicine for those who are sick. This is very essential to suit human life.
Materials used for circuiting:
The materials used for this project were very interesting. We used electrical wires in which allowed electricity to flow through the wires, AND and OR gates which allow an input-input-output source, push buttons which were programmed to act as a switch, breadboard and an arduino board, LED lights, resistors, capacitors, inverters, battery packs, a multimeter, and a buzzer.
This is the arduino and the breadboard attached to the black holder in which our logic system was built onand programmed:
Medicine Delivery System:
The Medicine Delivery System is a system that dispenses medicine depending on the level of sickness of a patient. This is essential to better the human life because without medicine, people could get very sick, and medicine has been evolving humans lately. Humans only used to live about 40 a long time ago but now humans can even live to the age 90! We created this system using the materials given. If no buttons are pushed, it means the patient may be sicked a medicine will be dispensed, but you should check a doctor; the green light will turn on. If one button is pushed, a yellow light will appear, which means you are sick and you need medicine. If two buttons are pushed, a red light will appear, which means there are two risks. If all buttons are pushed, it means that you are in need of immediate attention and an alarm will sound.

Overview of the project:
When our group members walked into class, we imagined building bridges, robots, and all sorts of cool stuff, but this idea was devastated when we found out what real life engineers really do. When engineers are creating a project, they think. Thinking is an essential part of building a project. Without thinking, there is a great chance of error. During this project, we learned not only about engineering, but also about teamwork, coordination, and even ourselves.
