Abstract
Developed agriculture needs to find new ways to improve efficiency. One approach is to utilize available information technologies in the form of more intelligent machines to reduce and target energy inputs in more effective ways than in the past. Precision Farming has shown benefits of this approach but we can now move towards a new generation of equipment. The advent of autonomous system architectures gives us the opportunity to develop a complete new range of agricultural equipment based on small smart machines that can do the right thing, in the right place, at the right time in the right way. Here, the project addresses an advanced system which improves agriculture processes like cultivation on ploughed land, based on robotic platform. We have developed a robotic vehicle having four wheels driven by DC motor. The four wheeled vehicle with belt is able to cultivate the farm or ploughed land by considering a particular row of specific column at a particular distance depending upon the crop. Also, it has ability to sense the obstacle in the way of vehicle with the help of infrared sensor. The distance between rows and columns, sensing of obstacle and signal conditioning all are integrated in one body to utilize in real world. The particular distance in between two seeds is controlled.
