Robots have the potential to positively transform lives and that’s exactly why our very own Delhi Government plans to embrace this technology - read on to find out what we’re talking about!

Robots Might Clean Sewers In Delhi | The Delhi Government aims to completely eradicate manual scavenging and the solution for that might be new-age cleaning robots! They were inspired by a robot named Bandicoot developed by a Kerala based start-up Genrobotics, which is a semi-automatic robot with cameras & a bucket to collect waste and requires a human operator to navigate when a manhole is not of a standard size or there are multiple sewer lines below. Sounds cool, eh?

The government plans to stop the inhuman practice of manual scavenging and might introduce a fully mechanised system to clean the sewage system and septic tanks using this robot.

Let’s hope we see this cutting edge new technology at work in the city!
