Agro Weeder technology


With the growing needs of convenience, technology now tries to seek automation in every aspect possible. We present a self-driving Agroweeder which would eradicate human intervention in the field of driving. The Agroweeder would drive itself from one place to the other on its own it would possess integrated features like lane-detection, automatic weed remover, tilling of land, etc. This features would help the Agroweeder drive itself to the mentioned destination on the track properly, avid collisions, provide live streaming of the view in front of it with the help of camera mounted over the Agroweeder.

AgroWeeder: Self-Driving Power-Weeder based on Raspberry Pi
free download

AgroWeeder using the Raspberry-Pi. The pi-camera module along with an ultrasonic sensor is used to provide necessary data from the real world to the AgroWeeder which would then pass the data on to the raspberry-pi. The Agroweeder is capable of removing the weeds from the farm. This will help farmers to reduce their work of tilling the land and removing the weeds.
