In the past few years, there have been several accidents of children falling into abandoned bore wells in India. Abandoned bore wells have turned into death pits for children. Rescue teams spend hours and sometimes days in futile attempts to save these little kids. A lot of money is also spent in these missions. In most cases they are unable to save the kids. Such events have happened numerous times in the past, and every time either the government or the bureaucracy is blamed. The rescue process to save the child from a bore well is long and complicated. The rescue team tries to approach the victim from a parallel well that take about 20-60 hours to dig. This complicated process makes 70% of the rescue operations fail. Very few of the victims have been saved in such accidents. Recently some autonomous robots came on to screen to take out the trapped body in a systematic way. But the question rises, why these bots are not in action in the real world? This brings out safety that how far the robot handles the child safely.
The rescue operation mainly consists of three processes: Approaching the Child, Handling the body, Taking child out of the well. A regular autonomous robot could easily perform the first and third operations. These bots can make up these two steps within few minutes. But there is a great chance for injury of victim as they try hooking up body organs and cloths. Our Project deals with extreme Safe Handling of the victim.
Hence our project deals with a new innovative concept of a bore well rescue robot which is semi automated such that the child fallen in the bore wells can be saved without any injury in a stipulated time.
