Abstract-Japan’s earthquake and tsunami of 2011, also called the Great Sendai Earthquake, occurred at a relatively shallow depth of 15 miles, meaning much of its energy was released at the seafloor. The massive March 11 earthquake and tsunami had a magnitude of 8.9 knocked out Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant’s, reactor cooling systems, where workers were battling to prevent radiation leaks and a total meltdown. Instead of a human, a robot is used to find the meltdown position of the Uranium reactors in Fukushima. Certain considerations that restrict the use of particular robots are discussed. This paper thoroughly describes the steps taken by the Ministry of Human and Resource Development for their initiation for skill development in Robotic Technology in India. E-Yantra is a project sponsored by MHRD through the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), New Delhi to bring awareness and development of skills among the students about Robotic technology. IIT Mumbai is conducting e-Yantra Robotics Competition for undergraduate students in Engineering/ Science/ Polytechnic colleges with no registration fee.
