    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.
