Abstract: Medical technology has undergone major breakthroughs in recent years, especially in the area of the examination tools for diagnostic purposes. The traditional examination method for the diagnosis of gastrointestinal diseases is gastroscopy with the use of an endoscope. Wireless camera pill has created a new perspective for engineers and physicians. After years of great innovation, commercial swallowable pills have been produced and applied in clinical practice. These pills can cover the examination of the gastrointestinal system and provide to the physicians not only a lot more useful data that is not available from the traditional methods, but also elimination of the use of the painful endoscopy procedure. In this paper, a new design of the wireless swallowable pills has been proposed. It takes advantage of the benefits of every sub-system, like camera lenses, image compressor and RF sub-system. In this way our system can provide enough and accurate data to the physicians.
