Solar Based Multi-Tasking Agriculture Robot

Authors(3) :-Vaishnavi N. Shinde, Namita S. Sharma, Prof. M S. Kasar

The main purpose of our project is to provide affordable, compact, multi-purpose robot to farmers for their agricultural use. It is a Solar based Multi-tasking Robot which performs various operations such as grass cutting, fertilizers and pesticides spraying in farms. Also it includes soil analysis in which it gives percentage of water in soil along with it, it also provides an estimated soil temperature. So as to suggest a proper amount of fertilizer that should be used to provide adequate amount of nutrients. All these operations are performed on solar energy so it does not need any external power supply that gives us a wide range to cover with the robot. As it includes multiple operations it is cost effective. It’s controlling is done via a mobile application which makes it user friendly as well.
