Abstract

Infants born prematurely are generally kept in special chambers referred to as “incubators”, which are enclosures with controlled temperature and humidity. For some special treatment some new-born babies are placed in the incubators. Since the introduction of incubators and its advancement in technology, the survival rate of premature births and new-borns has increased significantly. Advanced incubators are very expensive making it difficult for hospitals, especially small ones, to procure them especially with economic crunch and resource constraints for capital equipment. This paper provides the details for the design and development of a microcontroller based temperature and humidity sensor for an infant incubator.
