In order to solve the existing problems such as inefficiency prescription-processing and high errors in hospitals, the automated
pharmacy system is developed, which actualizes the automation of medicines-filling, medicines-storage and medicines-dispensing.
Medicines are dispensed by the lifter system, which possess the characteristics of nonlinear, time-varying and complex. A
fuzzy adaptive PID control method is presented based on the immune feedback regulating law and the adaptive ability of fuzzy
logic ratiocination. The academic analysis and simulation results indicate the validity of the controller. The storage and
retrieval efficiency is crucial factor in estimating the performance of the automated pharmacy. The scheduling policy, a multi-objective
optimization, is proposed and solved by the genetic algorithm. Experiment results and computer simulations have proved the
feasibility and effectiveness of the strategy in dynamic allocating the storage-positions and ensure the smoothness of filling
and dispensing. So the good performance and high efficiency of the automated pharmacy system are achieved.

    ABSTRACT: With increasing ownership of smartphones and membership of various social network services (SNS), new types of Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) has become available to travelers. The smartphone enables mobile users to input and access real-time information while SNSs provide voluntarily collected personal information among networks of friends. Internet of Things (IoT) philosophy can be applied for connecting smartphone users for various transportation applications. This paper develops Facebook-based carpooling, and proposes Twitter-based traffic monitoring and Flickr-based incident reporting applications. The SNS services provide application programming interfaces (APIs) that allow external users to access their databases. The APIs provide a basis for the development of transportation applications for each service. Facebook can allow a group of friends to share a ride based on their attributes which are available in their personal information sections. Twitter can be used for sharing traffic conditions on the roads. Flickr can be customized as a geo-tagged collision reporting tool with real-time close-up photos of traffic collisions. It is found that available APIs are useful for implementing SNS-based transportation applications. It is also found that search times for carpooling partners vary with multiple factors: time-of-day, number of potential partners, and desired tolerance levels for location and time.
