In the resent past one field which has brought in many changes in the human lives is the technology. Technology is meant for bringing innovation in human lives and reduces the efforts to accomplish a task. Corporate hospitals today employ large number of doctors specialized in various fields. Out patients who wish to consult a particular doctor finds it very difficult to locate their respective doctor's cabin. Keeping the patient's difficulty of tracking the doctors, an embedded based device has been designed to assist patients to easily locate the doctor's cabin. The device displays the patient's name and token number outside of the consultant's room.
