    Abstract

    This research looks at the design and construction of an Arduino controlled prototype of irrigation system based on a mobile platform/vehicle for agricultural sector. The vehicle is designed to be controlled through an Infrared (IR) remote control with a range of at least 5 meters. The vehicle uses an ultrasonic sensor to avoid collisions and obstacles. This system is mostly manually controlled and the only automatic feature is the spray technique. There is also an option to manually position the sprayer using the remote control to spray either water/pesticide. Two servo motors are used to achieve horizontal and vertical positioning of the spraying nozzle. The vehicle also carries a storage tank through which water/pesticide can be sprayed using DC motor pump controlling via a micro controller. The vehicle has four large wheels controlled by 2 DC motors and these allow the vehicle mobility over rough terrain.
