Idea Name: Robotic Pest-Killer
Slogan: Save crops save new generation!
Startup Domain: Agriculture
Abstract:
    An intelligent robotics mountable manipulator that would automatically detect various types of diseases on crops and spray pesticides on them to eliminate the diseases and insects.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Due to expensive Diseases diagnosing methods and spraying machinery, more than 70 to 75 % farmers have to diagnose and spraying pesticides manually to prevent diseases growth and insects. Idea is to introduce a device that do these tasks automatically with high accuracy to reduce agri-crisis.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Commercial and private farmers of crops like grapes, citrus, and flowers etc.Grapes' and Citrus' total area and production are 15,351 Hectares,76,045 Tonnes approx. and 206,569 Hectares, 2,357,629 approx. Device act as a tool for farmers to mount it on any machinery for disease & insect prevention.
How will the solution works
    In Stage 1: selection of methodologies, design of mechanical model and electrical circuit, and programming In stage 2: integration of mechanical, electrical and programming parts. Then initialization of testing phases In stage 3: advertisement of manipulator and testing in crops Technical working: Manipulator mounted on controlled platform (UGV) to move in crops. Disease detection: Through camera and image processing. Pesticide spraying: a movable nozzle on defected plants scanned by cam.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Competitors are as follow:Farmers' traditional mindset and farming methods, Agriculture research institutes' mechanisms and Expensive foreign Agri-Products Differentiation: An intelligent, standalone, mountable manipulator with automatic and inexpensive diseases detection and pesticide spraying.
