About 20 million premature and low birth weight infants are born every year in developing countries. The death of these infants occurs due to the unavailability of cost-effective incubators. In earlier days the babies were monitored by nurse. This system was prone to human errors. After that NICUs were an established part of hospitals in the developed world. The preterm infant care is one of the most important, delegate and sensitive area in bio-medical field. The incubator is used to maintain an artificial environment for a neonate to survive. An infant incubator provides stable level of temperature to an extent in which the preterm have the same condition as in the womb. The aim of our project is to develop a portable incubator. Regulating the temperature is one of the most important factors affecting the survival.In this project, we design an incubator system that helps us to monitor and control the temperature.
