Abstract:

Agriculture is the backbone for every nation, whereas, it needs a lot of manpower to cultivate a good yield. The first stage in agriculture is to make the land suitable for cultivation by ploughing. The traditional ploughing method is time consuming, thereby, farmers use tractors for ploughing. Ploughing through tractors, needs much of attention. To overcome the difficulties in ploughing through tractors, the operation of tractor is being automated. The existing automated self-driving tractors employ GPS (Global Positioning System) to track the ploughing path and to locate the areas, where the seeds need to be sowed. The major drawbacks in fully automated tractor is trajectory planning which needs complex calculation and accurate directions based on velocity, time and kinematics. These disadvantages can be overcome by designing and making a semi-automatic tractor with Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) technique to control the movement of the tractor through mobile. The DTMF uses GSM technology for the transmission and reception of signals. The signals generated by DTMF are transmitted with the help of mobile communication network. The signals generated by DTMF are decoded and processed in the Arduino microcontroller, which generates the signal to drive the tractor. The advantage of using DTMF is that it has infinite range of control and the system control remains simple and efficient and easy to operate.
