The labour-intensive nature of farming coupled with the global trend of labour shortages poses a significant challenge to the agricultural industry. As manual labour becomes scarcer, there's a pressing need for innovative solutions to enhance efficiency and sustainability in farming practices. Our project tackles this challenge head-on by introducing a solar-powered 4-wheeled robot designed to autonomously perform essential tasks such as soil raking and precision seeding. By reducing dependency on manual labour, our robot revolutionises agriculture, making it more efficient and sustainable in the face of labour shortages.
Our proposed solution is our solar-powered robot, which serves as a pioneering response to the labour shortage problem in agriculture. Its adaptability to various crops and terrains ensures its effectiveness across both large-scale farming operations and personal gardens, catering to diverse agricultural needs. The integration of a precision seeding unit guarantees optimal crop growth conditions, while the accompanying mobile app enables remote monitoring and control, enhancing user convenience and accessibility. With market forecasts projecting significant growth in autonomous farming, our robot not only aligns with sustainability goals but also unlocks new possibilities for commercial agriculture and home gardeners alike. It represents more than just a product; it signifies a crucial step towards a greener, more efficient future for the agricultural sector.
Use Case
``Across Europe farmers are taking to the street voicing their complaints about various agriculture challenges such as climate change, rising fuel taxes, cost of living crisis and strict environmental regulations. CropCare, an autonomous smart farming robot that is powered by solar energy, is being introduced to assist farmers in improving their yield and implement sustainable practices to ensure compliance with environmental regulations. CropCare uses ultrasonic sensors to navigate through the field with precision, it utilises a soil moisture sensor to assess the soil moisture levels, allowing it to sow seeds and rake them into the soil when the conditions are suitable. Additionally ultrasonic sensors can also detect any foreign objects in the field, which prompts CropCare to carry out an emergency stop preventing any injury to a person or animal, the sensors are also programmed to detect animal habitats and designated field routes minimising disruptions to wildlife. All data that is collected by the robot is saved and stored in a document providing insightful feedback to the farmer. ``


List of Essential Tools and Technologies



“In the development of our robot, we employed a suite of technologies and tools that were integral to the planning and prototyping stages. For the design and planning, (CAD) software was utilised to create detailed models of the robot. This allowed for precise visualisation and modification before physical construction. The programming of the robot’s functions was accomplished using the Arduino IDE, which provided user-friendly platform for coding in C++.
• Ultrasonic Sensor Module: This module helps the robot detect obstacles in its path. Using ultrasonic waves, it can determine the distance to an object and aid the robot in navigating around it, preventing collisions and ensuring smooth operation.
• Soil Moisture Sensor: The soil moisture sensor is an integral part of the robot’s environmental monitoring system. It measures the moisture level of the soil, providing data that helps determine the optimal timing and location for seed dispensing.
• DC motor: Programs the functionality of the seed dispenser, allowing for controlled seed dispersal, ensuring accurate and efficient planting.
• Servo motor: Utilised to create indents in the soil, enabling the robot to prepare the ground for seed placement. By precisely controlling the movement of the servo motor, the robot can create uniform indentations, optimising seed placement.

Impact on the market

``With the current population of 8 billion people farmers are having to use poor environmental practices and lower the quality of their yield to meet the rising demand for produce. To cope with this farmers have resorted to using poor environmental practices which in turn reduces the quality of their yield. Unfortunately, these practices are having a negative impact on the environment such as the contamination of local water, fertilisers often used by farmers contain a chemical that seeps itself into local water poisoning the local aquatic species and ecosystem. CropCare utilises its sensors and assesses the data collected to provide insightful information to farmers to locate potential issues within the field – the farmer can then develop an action plan to address the issues. As well as that CropCare operates on the field at a faster rate than a person could while consuming less energy.

In regards to the market there are multiple Autonomous robots out there but nothing compares to the muti-functionality of CropCare. While most robots are proficient at performing a single task, CropCare sets itself apart as it addresses multiple agriculture challenges and promotes innovative thinking from farmers by providing them with useful insights on their yield.



“The journey to create our 4-wheeled robot was marked by three distinct prototype stages, each critical to the evolution of the final product. The initial stage focused on addressing the labour-intensive nature of agriculture and the growing scarcity of farm labour. Through the use of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software, we meticulously crafted detailed 3D models, which were instrumental in visualising and optimising the robot’s design for maximum functionality and durability. This phase was not just about conceptualization but also about selecting the most robust hardware components to ensure the robot’s reliability across diverse agricultural landscapes.

In the second stage, our attention turned to bringing the robot to life. Programming became the core activity, with the Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE) serving as our primary tool for coding. We wrote and uploaded instructions to the robot’s microcontrollers, laying the groundwork for its autonomous navigation and precision seeding. To guarantee the electronic circuits operated flawlessly, we employed simulation tools for virtual testing, allowing us to pre-emptively address any technical issues. This iterative process of testing and refinement was pivotal, leading to a prototype capable of autonomously raking soil and dispensing seeds, adaptable to various terrains and crops.

The final stage of development was a testament to our commitment to sustainable and efficient farming practices. We refined our prototype, focusing on enhancing its autonomous capabilities and ensuring seamless operation in both large-scale farming and personal garden settings. The result was a robot that not only performed its intended tasks with precision but also represented a significant leap towards the future of agriculture-a future where technology alleviates labour shortages and promotes eco-friendly farming methods. This stage solidified our robot’s position as a versatile and indispensable tool in the modern agricultural landscape
