In this paper, a system for monitoring intravenous infusion was proposed. Traditionally, doctors and nurses use their experience to estimate the time needed to empty a medicine bottle, making intravenous therapy vulnerable to human errors. This study proposes an internet-enabled drop and flow monitoring platform for intravenous infusion systems. Such a device will allow doctors and nursing staff to monitor the parameters of the dropper wirelessly. It has two main units: the camera unit and the controller unit. The camera unit contains an optical infrared emitter and a drop-detection detector, which are placed on the camera unit. The controller unit consists of a microcontroller and a WIFI communication module.
