Design and development of semi-automatic bot for agricultural applications
Agriculture is the backbone of our country, and almost 60% of country's economy depends on agriculture. In today's scenario all fields are injected with automation for the purpose of high productivity and single time investment. The main objective of this work is to automate the drying process of various cereals (PADDY). The manual process of levelling the grains is a time consuming one and it requires a large number of human labours with high wages. The constructed system is a semi-automatic bot with a hopper to load the cereals and a plough tool to level the grains on the surface. The movement of the bot is controlled by a controller as per the instructions loaded By implementing this system large number of human labour is reduced. The maintenance of the system is less and it is an one time investment.
