Along with the development of many types of robots serving differenhuman needs, hospital robots have been researched and applied in many countries around the world. With the great development of the economy, science, and technology, it is necessary to replace humans by supporting robots. In fact, the health sector has been under great pressure due to the lack of human resources and the carelessness and errors that have serious consequences due to the overwork of hospital staff . Therefore, it is necessary to focus on investing in automatic technology, upgrading hospitals into smart hospitals, providing the best services to the public and reducing work pressure for medical staff. The topic “Robots transport laboratory samples in hospitals” addresses the issue of building a smart hospital in the 4.0 technolgy revolution. Currently, in some developed countries such as the US , UK , Japan , China, et al,… are in the process of testing transport robots in hospitals, with the hope that the efficient operation it brings will change the way hospitals operate, becoming more and more modern. However, the cost and suitability of infrastructure and facilities in domestic hospitals impedes access to world-class robotic technologies. From the requirements, our team decided to choose the topic “Robot transport samples for testing in hospitals” with the hope of contributing to reducing the work burden for hospital staff, minimizing the genetic traits continuously moved, and also contributing to solving the shortage of human resources , from which people will be better served . In addition , the topic also opens up a new approach to building smart hospitals. Mobile security monitoring and self-propelled robots with high precision will help to reduce carelessness and human errors in the working process.
