Abstract
This paper focuses on the design and Construction of an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) for fumigation purpose using an Arduino Uno board, An Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) is a vehicle operating in contact with the ground, carrying equipment or materials and supplies, without human presence on board.four DC motors, one servo motor, sprayer and Bluetooth module were used for the successful implementation of the system. The Arduino Uno broad with an onboard ATmega328Pmicrocontroller was used to serve as the entire brain of the system which holds the C code that controls the robot movements, the spraying and the rotation of the sprayer. The Bluetooth module was used to establish a wireless control of the vehicle, the spraying and sprayer tank rotation. The system prototype designed was tested under different case scenarios to verify its reliability.
