ABSTRACT: Smart farming and precision agriculture involve the integration of advanced technologies into existing farming practices in order to increase production efficiency and the quality of agricultural products. As an added benefit, they also improve the quality of life for farm workers by reducing heavy labor and tedious tasks. Replacing human labor with automation is a growing trend across multiple industries, and agriculture is no exception. Most aspects of farming are exceptionally labor-intensive, with much of that labor comprised of repetitive and standardized tasks an ideal niche for robotics and automation. Our proposed robot performing tasks ranging from planting and watering, to harvesting and collecting. Eventually, this new wave of smart equipment will make it possible to produce more and higher quality food with less man power. The core concept of incorporating autonomous robotics into agriculture remains the goal of reducing reliance on manual labor, while increasing efficiency, product yield and quality.
