An Indian media has invented robots to help the United Arab Emirates (UAE) become greener, including a cleaner robot that preserves the marine environment and another that helps minimize human labor on farms, media reports said. Sainath Manikandan, a student at GEMS United Indian School, built Marine Robot Cleaner (MBot Cleaner) and Agriculture Robot (Agribot), and said he expects authorities to implement their inventions on a larger scale, the Khaleej Times reported on Thursday.

The robot is powered by solar panels instead of batteries.

What is the objective of this project?

Their mission with robots is to help protect marine species and farmers who work in warmer countries such as the United Arab Emirates.

"MBot is a prototype robot that can remove floating debris from surface water, basically it is in the shape of a boat and can be operated remotely with radio control, it works with two engines that help the boat move in the water. one wheel and then the third motor to push the waste from the bodies of water into the storage basket, "he said.

The student added that by developing the MBot on a larger scale, "we can try to preserve our marine species and the environment."

Manikandan has suggested that drones be used in conjunction with this robot to help and control the process of planting seeds on farms.

"The purpose of AgriBot is to help farmers in warm countries like the United Arab Emirates, is designed to minimize the work of farmers, in addition to increasing the speed and accuracy of work, performs the elementary functions involved in agriculture, such as plowing the field, sowing seeds, and covering the seeds with earth.

"The robot is autonomous and provides the facility for optional change of the plow system when necessary," he said.
