Development, Fabrication and Automation of an Agricultural Implement meant for Cultivation
The labour dependency in an agriculture driven country like India is one of the major problem affecting the rate of production. This paper details the methodology and principles involved in development of an automation kit which can be mounted on any tiller for its autonomous functioning. The automation kit is developed with the efficient application of mechatronics and kinematics. A two mode system is provided namely semi automatic and automatic mode for different field conditions. The automation of a power tiller thus eliminates the arduous task of one walking behind it in the slushy areas.
