SAS Nagar, October 20

Making most of modern day technology, Greater Mohali Area Development Authority has introduced the work of cleaning manholes in the city with the help of bandicoot robot, thus replacing the current system of manual cleaning of manholes. The mechanism while would improve sanitization system in the city, it would bring a positive change in the working of sanitization workers, as it would ensure contactless removal of waste and debris from the manholes.       

          The bandicoot robot can converge its diameter by using its legs to enter into the unseen depths of the manholes and pull out the solid waste material with its specially designed human comparable robotic arm and unclog the sewer system.         

  Utility of this mechanism assumes significance in present time, when corona virus has spread. Sanitation workers are quite prone to COVID-19 so this robot would be a big relief for them, as the robot ensures zero physical contact with the sewage waste and helps the workers stay away from the virus.
