A solar-based Solar Powered seed sowing machine is an electronic machine that implants seeds into the soil, relying on energy from the sun. The purpose of this robot is to place precise and even spaced seeds to enhance productivity and reduce time consumption.
This project will provide a better agriculture solution with a minimized cost. The main component of this project is the solar panel that will convert the solar energy into electrical energy which will be accumulated in the battery to provide the necessary power to DC motors to move the wheels. The sensors will help the robot in maneuvering and positioning. To pick and place seeds, we have used seeding disc that picks seeds from seed container and drop seeds with equidistance from the successive point. The device can be easily maintained because it consists of a modular structure. Overall, the proposed system is cost-effective, power-efficient, and user friendly that makes it suitable for all farmers.

The relay module is a device that can be used for switching purposes, which is a valuable part of the solar powered seed sowing machine. It turns into electromagnet when current flows through the coil. Relay is an electrically operated switch that can turn on or off, and can be controlled with low voltage (5V) that are provided by Arduino microcontroller. We use a relay module that has 2 channels, and it is a type of SPDT(single pole double throw) relay…

At first, battery, charging should be checked. Connect DMM to it and check the voltages. Check battery. Either it is charged. To charge the battery, we connect it with a Solar panel through a charge controller and charge DC battery.

A brand new writer in the fields, Fatima has been taken under my electric spark’s RGB- rich and ensures she doesn’t engage in excessive snark on the website. It’s unclear what command and Conquer are; however, she can talk for hours about the odd rhythm games, hardware, product reviews, and MMOs that were popular in the 2000s. Fatima has been creating various announcements, previews, and other content while here, but particularly enjoys writing regarding Products’ latest news in the market she’s currently addicted to. She is likely talking to an additional blogger with her current obsession right now.
