After Bomb Diffusion, Made In India Robots Are Ready To Clean Drains

After bomb diffusion robots were deployed, this time, Mumbai police enforcement is carrying out a drain cleaning project with the help of remote-controlled robots.

A few days ago, Mumbai police force deployed a robot called Mini Remotely Operated Vehicle (MROV), Rover Mark to help with damages minimization in bomb explosions.

This time, robots will be used in drain cleaning project. Many Indian laborers have died from intoxications or asphyxiation because of manually cleaning the drains. These robots will play a significant role in underground drain cleaning after end-to-end mechanical cleaning was not efficient.

To enable the use of robot starting from January 2019, approximately Rs 60 crore will be spent. Because of monsoon season and heavy rainfall, pre-monsoon work is carried out from January to May each year to prevent flooding.

According to officials,  they will use a robot which is remote-controlled, equipped with a camera. This robot will remove silt from the drain and put it in a recycler machine.

From the monitor, the officials can see the amount of silt that has been removed. However, another contractor will be in charge of the robot project. The preparation of the project will take place from December 15. The on the ground work will begin from January 1, 2019.

According to reports, drains in Mumbai city can carry a capacity of 25mm of water an hour. After the 2005 flooding, work to increase the drain capacity has been carried out. But, most of the drains are built underground. Therefore, to widen or deepen all of the drains seems to be impossible.
