Manual scavenging was ruled illegal in 2013, but private contractors hired by the municipal government continue to employ manual scavengers. Hundreds reportedly die from the work each year. To provide a complete solution to this deplorable situation, artificial intelligence is used as a replacement to manpower. The sewage inspection and cleaning is done by a mechanical device driven by electronic automation. BhrtyArtana (where ‘Bhrtya’ means robot and ‘Artana' means waste) is an automated sewer robot that can conduct an inspection of the sewage pipeline and clear any blockage within it. The robot first inspects sewer lines for cracks, corrosion, obstacles, etc. A camera installed atop the robot carries out live streaming of the interior of the pipeline. These visuals are viewed by the operator in software to be recorded for future reference. Furthermore, the robot is equipped with a proximity sensor at the front of its body to detect the presence of an obstacle in front of it. As the robot nears the obstacle, the turbine starts cutting through the obstacle, thus, clearing the obstacle. Thus, this device effectively decreases all the predicaments associated with sewage cleaning and inspection.

Key-Words / Index Term
