AIoT Herbal Picking and Delivery System for Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital

Rooted in a deep and rich history, traditional Chinese medicine offers a unique medical perspective. With the rapid advancement of technology, AI technology and AIoT have been seamlessly integrated with the traditional Chinese medicine dispensing process. This seamless fusion of traditional wisdom and modern technology has led to significant improvements in efficiency and accuracy. Taking reference from the operation of hospitals and adapting it to common Chinese medicine practices, LSCM developed this system with the latest technologies including AI, IoT and robotics. The system applies AI Visual Analytics as a verification machine to visually verify the Chinese medicine items according to the prescription while deploying IoT technology in the traditional “Chinese Medicine Cabinet” for pick-to-light assistance in Chinese medicine dispensing. Further, conveyancing robots are also used to deliver the Chinese medicine to the designated locations in the hospital.

This solution has won a Bronze Medal in the 48th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
