Abstract
Drug delivery is one of the most important applications of molecular communication. Drug transmitters have limited resources in terms of energy and reservoir and these limitations should be taken into consideration when designing a drug delivery system. Drug molecules may also be expensive and releasing a large amount of them can have harmful effects on the healthy parts of the body. In this paper, we consider a multiple transmitter local drug delivery system in which the nearest transmitters to...
