The primary goal was to evaluate robotic couriers for design and operation in hospital environment and to create a robot drivetrain that is more robust and maneuverable than current robotic couriers. These drivetrain improvements allow couriers to efficiently complete functions they were designed to accomplish. Existing drivetrain systems were evaluated through decision and design matrices to choose a drivetrain which could most benefit this application. A mecanum drive was chosen due to several factors including mobility, reliability, and maintenance among others.
