Drones for Agriculture
MetadataShow full item record
Taking measurements for agriculture purposes is a challenge that this project tackles. A UAV and some sensors are being used to monitor a big field. The target of this project is to design a fully autonomous system that covers the area of planted land. The system collects information and sends what is collected directly to the base station. Furthermore, the design is divided into two parts: plane design and ground design. The plane design includes a temperature sensor, a CO2 sensor, an NoIR camera a regular camera and a 4G dongle. The ground design, however, has one soil moisture sensor, one H2S sensor and a GSM module. The plane takes a trip around the field to record real time data and transmits, while the on-ground black box sends data to the base station. Finally, data is analysed, and reports are sent to the base station and the mobile application created for this cause. The plane has carried tests in the airport in Al-Khor city. The tests were to make sure the UAV flies properly and they were successful.
