A Smart Agriculture Assisting Robot using Internet of Things
Abstract— Agriculture is the backbone of our country. Robots are playing an important role in field of agriculture for farming process autonomously. The proposed system aims at making the agriculture smart by using automation and IoT technologies. Agri-robot is a robot designed for agricultural purposes to minimize labour and energy consumption. The highlighting features of this project includes Raspberry Pi based remote controlled robot to perform tasks like Seed Sowing and Automatic Irrigation. The efficient mechanism of the disperse seeds are led to fall into the soil through the seed dispenser and it includes smart irrigation with pump automation and intelligent decision making based on accurate real time field data. The farmers can able to control the robotic actions by switching onto the desired modes through dashboard from the mobile connected to Internet. These operations will be performed by interfacing sensors, motor, smart phone Wi-Fi and actuators with Raspberry Pi. It is designed to minimize the labour wages in addition to increasing the speed and accuracy of the work. Thus the multitasking robot keeping the ideology that multiple small autonomous machines could be more efficient than traditional large tractors and human effort.
