This project suggests improvement in agriculture processes like automatic planting of seeds on ploughed land by using robot. We have developed a robotic vehicle having four wheels and steered by DC motors. The seed planting mechanism is fitted on the vehicle to plant the seeds in uniform manner. The enhanced agriculture robotic system architecture gives us the opportunity to develop a complete new range of agricultural equipment based on small smart machines. The machine will cultivate the farm by considering particular rows and specific column at fixed distance depending on different seeds. The obstacle detection problem will also be considered, sensed by infrared sensor. Assembly language is used in programming the microcontrollers. The whole algorithm, processing, monitoring are designed with dc motors, sensor and encoder circuit.
