ABSTRACT:

More than 40 percent of the population in the world chooses agriculture as the primary occupation. The main objective of the project is to design a multitasking vehicle for agriculture which could run automatically. It is designed to minimize the labor of farmers in addition to increase the speed and accuracy of the work. The control and monitoring are based on internet of things, due to which the actual status of the field can be monitored and controlled from any part of world using internet. In our project we have two control systems i.e. field control and robot control. In field control the soil moisture, temperature and humidity is sensed using suitable sensors and the field is controlled by suitable actions as well as the information is updated to the farmer by an app. The theft of crops by humans and the attack of animals in the agricultural land cause heavy loss in cultivation. For intruder detection in the agricultural field we can use PIR sensor and do image processing technique to detect them. Usually, fires occur naturally in agricultural fields, ignited by heat from the sun or a lightning strike. So, we design a system in the field to extinguish such fire at very early stage. The robot control has a camera to provide a live vision of the field so while it performs its basic operations, we can monitor everything. The whole system can be switched to automated mode for complete control of the farm by the robot and manual mode for control by farmer. The robot sprays pesticides and weedicides to control attack of pest and weeds in the field. Also, the battery can be recharged by the solar panel kept above the vehicle. This ensures the using eco-friendly energy source and prevents frequent charging of the vehicle.
