Vaccines are a very effective way of treating preventable diseases in developing countries where it is difficult to supply medical devices and medicines. However, despite the efficiency and benefits of these vaccines, factors such as lack of power supply, geographical ruggedness, and insufficient infrastructure have prevented the spread of vaccine coverage in developing countries. In this project, based on the Internet of Things (IoT) monitoring database constructed with a smartphone and the data obtained from sensors in vaccine carrier, it will be possible to localize and optimize the vaccine carrier to be used in developing countries by using learning algorithms. The goal is to maximize the use time of the vaccine carrier by learning and predicting optimum power usage that maintains the optimal vaccine storage temperature of 2℃to 8℃ in a low power supported environment.
