I have made a medical vending machine for my college project which can be used in remote areas to provide them with the basic medicines to help them deal with curable diseases and providing them the proper emergency medical kits as per the area statistics of prevailing diseases of the area. So I was using raspberry-pi3 for the project and to avoid the heating problem I had used heat sink and cooling fan but still I found after testing it for 2-3 days that I had to change the raspberry pi or would have to shut down the machine for some time else the system would start getting hanged and it also corrupted one of my memory card, I was lucky that i had backup of my project else i would have to implement my project from scratch again.
This is my RPI3 setup:
- It's running the latest version of Ubuntu Mate.
- It's connected to WiFi.
- 5 inch Touch Screen HDMI Interface is used
- 16gb memory card is used which is getting overheated due to high computing involved.
Any suggestions to solve this problem so it can be used in my machine for 24/7?
(Note - Please do not suggest to use any other costly device instead of raspberry pi as I am using it for college project.)
