Nanoparticle drug carriers play an important role in facilitating efficient targeted drug delivery, i.e., improving treatment success and reducing drug costs and side effects. However, the mobility of nanoparticle drug carriers poses a challenge in designing drug delivery systems. Moreover, healing results critically depend on the rate and time duration of drug absorption. Therefore, in this paper, we aim to design a controlled-release drug delivery system with a mobile drug carrier that minimizes the total amount of released drugs while ensuring a desired rate of drug absorption during a prescribed time period. We model the mobile drug carrier as a mobile transmitter, the targeted diseased ..
