Abstract

With innovations in every field of our lives, agriculture is also a field that is getting impacted on a huge scale with technological innovations. Smart farming is aiding in boosting the quality and quantity of the yields. This paper discusses the design and development of an autonomous multitasking robot that can be used for digging the soil, sowing seeds, harvesting as well as irrigation. This robot works on solar energy and will also help in conserving non-renewable energy resources on a large scale thereby contributing towards a sustainability of our planet. The main aim is to provide smart farming at low cost without compromising on the efficiency of the processes involved. The primary aim of our project is to develop a multitasking agricultural robot, which can be used for agricultural processes like digging the soil, seed sowing, crop cutting(harvesting) and irrigation system. keeping in mind low cost and more efficient. This robot will derive its power from solar panel making it energy efficient and eco- friendly. A Multitasking robot for the field of Agriculture has been studied in this research. Now a day, precision agriculture by agricultural robots is the newly emerging technology in agriculture sector to save the time and energy that is wasted in repetitive farming tasks automation in farming processes is quite helpful. To design these sorts of robots there should be certain considerations and particular approach considering the agriculture environment in which it will be working. The working of an autonomous robot is based on field parameters i.e., length and width. Prototype of an agricultural robot is modelled for multitasking such as seeding, ploughing and harvesting with a separate irrigation system. It will also help in decreasing the use of non-renewable sources of energy and will not pollute the environment. The approach is now to develop smarter machines that are intelligent enough to work in an unmodified or semi natural environment.
