The objective of our project is to design an agricultural robot which performs ploughing and seeding operation and takes supply from PV panel. A sensor guidance method is presented to guide a robot platform which is designed independently to drive through the crops in a field according to the design. It is mainly comprised of the rear and front cabins, the driving devices with wheels and the frame. The power supply, motor controllers, and other controlled components are placed in the front cabin and IR sensor is fixed in front of it for finding edge location of both sides. The rear cabin can be used for storage boxes to store some materials such as pesticides, insecticides, and fertilizers. The driving devices include DC motors, gear mechanism with sprocket and wheels. To design a robot which is autonomous and self-sufficient requires enough energy to operate. But they have to be made parallel to optimize the robot energetically. In particular, a power supply solution that utilizes solar cells and a microcontroller has been chosen to power and control the robot.
