一种s per the data provided by National Commission for Safai Karamacharis (NCSK), at least one Indian worker has died while cleaning sewers or septic tanks every five days since the beginning of 2017 and is considered one of country’s deadliest jobs and most insidious form of caste discrimination. To alleviate this problem, IndianOil has provided Robotic Scavenging Machine (named Bandicoot) to Kumbakonam Municipal Corporation, Tamil Nadu. "Bandicoot has a control unit/user interface and a robotic spider- like device at the bottom with four limbs, which is lowered into the manholes for undertaking cleaning operations. It is equipped with seven cameras and many sensors. The limbs scoop/collect the silt from different angles inside the manhole and heap the dirt at one place, which is then lifted up using ropes & buckets. Bandicoot works with precision, takes less time, requires only one/ two persons to operate and saves many man-hours.
