Abstract


Covid-19, which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), has succeeded in shaking the whole world. This situation requires medical personnel to work extraordinarily to treat Covid-19 patients at the risk of their lives because of the very high risk of transmission. For this reason, this study is aimed at taking small steps in contributing to helping medical personnel handle Covid-19 patients through robotic and computational technology. The development method in this study is proposed as a way to develop robots to serve patients in isolation rooms controlled at a distance away from other rooms. From technical testing related to the movement of the robot with a load of 12.59kg, it only experienced a speed slowdown which was not too significant, namely at 0.43s with an average percentage of slowdown of 8.96%. In addition, the accuracy rate of the proximity sensor testing is close to perfect with an accuracy percentage of 99.62%. The robot control distance was monitored and the test was running well. Also, the increase in motor temperature is not too large, supported by measurement results of 32.13%. From non-technical testing, based on the test results of the feasibility test of all respondents with 25 indicators, the results of the development of this study reached a feasibility level of 91.46%. In other words, healthcare mobile robots developed for helping medical personnel in dealing with Covid-19 patients are very feasible to be applied in hospitals.
