Abstract

Low birth weight premature baby have inefficient thermoregulation. Thermoregulation is very important process which plays crucial role in development of baby. Baby incubator provides favorable environment for new born babies and protects them from pollutants and infection. Modern incubators are costly and difficult to handle. "Microcontroller based baby incubator" using ATmega 168 controls and monitor constantly the temperature and humidity. This incubator is low cost and user friendly. It provides the details of the project to design and develop an efficient, cost effective and environmental friendly incubator. It helps to avoid the death of premature infant due to lack of consistent heat. This decrease in temperature of infant is because of extremely low birth weight.
