Along with advancement of chemical and biological technology, new medicine and medicine carrier have been introduced to market. The traditional drug administration solution can’t meet the new drug specified target efficacy requirement. As a result of the pharmaceutical industry growing, the new technology for modern drug delivery applications has been considered and adopted. Painless, needless, mobilization, personalization and smartness solutions have been steadily investigated, invested, developed and commercialized in the last decades. The innovation of the way to make drug administering more convenient and more effective has been accelerated. With incentives from all directions, the smart technology has been focused in the drug delivery development and the growing has been strong ever since. The smart technology that have been used in the drug dispense industry are mobile, portable, wearable, low energy, personalization, privacy, mesh network and cloud computing. In my presentation, I will present these technologies, their potentials and challenges for the future drug delivery devices.
