Abstract

Food means life and no one can think about living without food. This is the most fundamental human necessity and food security is one of the major global concern of this century. With the revolution and recent advancements in the field of electronics and communication, there has been a paradigm shift from conventional farming ways to the modern one. This paper talks about the development of hardware software co-design of agricultural farming robot. Our developed farming robot has two parts namely hardware part which further consists of mechanical, electrical, control and tools segments and the software part which allows user to interact with the farming robot via cloud service. Our proposed hardware architecture is compatible with commercial Farmbot product and the developed web-based software can be extended for more features and applications. Furthermore, the developed robot has been tested and it works well.
