In this project, a robot will be designed, fabricated and tested capable of removing weed effectively from a farmland, saving irrigation water and minerals to the grown trees. Moreover, it has a feature of collision avoidance with trees and other obstacles. GPS guidance will be utilized in addition to an Arduino controller. The robot will be powered by a chargeable battery and motors. A robust mechanical design will be considered to cater to the harsh environment intended. Cost-effectiveness will be an evaluation factor against the performance as well. Finally, The robot will be tested in a real farmland for practical evaluation.
