From cleaning sewers to sorting currency notes and doing heart surgery, robots are gaining ground in India (1/8)

Kerala Government is using a robot named 'Bandicoot' for cleaning the sewers, a task which not only required three people and many hours of labour, but is also an extremely hazardous task.

ICICI Bank uses robot to sort out currency notes brought from various locations. The old and soiled notes are removed and then the notes are further redistributed to ATMs and other branches. Robots pick up the notes, put them up for counting and then strap the notes in to bundles and place them in appropriate slots.

Ahmedabad based Apex Hospital has even performed a tele-robotic surgery on a patient who was located 32 Kms away in December 2018.
