Motivated by the increased need for assistance systems in the ambient assisted living domain and the challenges posed by non-adherence to medication plans by the elderly, we have developed a hardware and software-based medication assistance system in the form of an intelligent and interconnected pill dispenser. The system maps needs for an elderly-appropriate assistance system through automation and artificial intelligence features as well as flexibility through an IoT-based, location-independent use. In this short contribution, the concept as well as the prototypical implementation are presented.
