Abstract

Since the beginning of 2020, Peru has been exposed to the inevitable spread of Covid-19, a highly contagious disease that is increasing around the world rapidly. Scientists and researchers propose various solutions to mitigate its effects or reduce infections, from simple procedures to complex systems such as robots or vaccines. For this reason, innovative research was carried out from 2020 to 2021 under the supervision of the school of Mechatronics Engineering at U niversidad Tecnologica del Peru, so, this article, presents a SCARA robot prototype capable of performing rapid tests with blood samples to detect Covid-19. In addition, the robot has 4 servomotors and impactive end effector. In addition, this robot has 4 degrees of freedom, and this type was chosen for its speed and flexibility. This study develops a mechatronics conceptual design and kinematic analysis using the Denavit Hartenberg method using Matlab and, CAD in SolidWorks 2021. In conclusion, the purpose is to decrease the workload and protect the lives of people who perform the lab tests, being able to process them with greater precision.
