Current Camera Pill


CONFIDENTIAL

Project proposal




To create a camera pill on the mini scale


Mobile through the human Gastrointestinal Tract
(GI Tract)



Have data collection capabilities.


The focus of the project depends on the
establishment of three main subsystems:


-
propulsion


-

energy


-

exoskeleton

CONFIDENTIAL

Propulsion



Designing a system to control
the path and speed of the pill in
the G.I. Tract


Researching the feasibility of
reverse drive


Integrating the motor with a
wireless transmitter to allow for
real
-
time user control


Human GI tract

CONFIDENTIAL

Propulsion

Our Computer model
of Human GI track

Our physical model of GI tract

This is the valves that will
provide contraction to move
the pill along the GI tract


CONFIDENTIAL

The Computer Design of Our Pill


CONFIDENTIAL

Energy



The pill demand a consistent
power supply for data collection
and processing.



The feasibility of the use of
piezoelectric fibers to provide
power to the mini scale camera pill
will be analyzed.


Contraction of the human
Gastrointestinal Tract would yield
strain on the piezoelectric fibers
producing energy.

CONFIDENTIAL

CONFIDENTIAL

Exoskeleton



Researching possible materials


Researching the possibility of a Biodegrading enclosure
for the device


Designing several enclosures for the device and the
onboard optic system

CONFIDENTIAL

Benefits



For doctors to diagnose their patient better
with Celiac Disease, Benign and Malignant
Tumor in the small intestine, Vascular
disorders.


Also to learn about the Human physiology


It more comfortable than a colonoscopy
