Abstract:
    AGROBOT (a prototype) is a ground based agricultural vehicle that will provide farmers a small, portable and smart platform to automatically and remotely survey farmland and detect crop diseases.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Agriculture is backbone of economy,Accounts for almost 26% of GDP.There is vast gap in actual and accquired yield,we rougly suffer 130,000 metric tons anuual loss due to rust diseases in Wheat only,FAO(UN) and NARC(PAK) suggests early detection as a prevention,AGROBOT will provide this smartly. .
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Farmers and Landowners are our main benefactors,employs about 43% of Country's labour force.Around 63 percent of population living in rural areas is indirectly or directly linked with Agriculture.Also,improvement in crop disease detection will positively effect economy.
How will the solution works
    The project AGROBOT will help the user to detect occurrence of disease in his crops using image processing techniques and to notify the user timely through an android application. The project has four basic modules: to accquire video of plants using camera and readings from sensors both mounted on Agrobot. Video processing Detect the disease in the crop send the results to the server via internet
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitotrs are Companies providing help in agriculture.Existing solutions are complex satellite based solutions,manual inspection and helpdesk form of solutions available as m-Services.We are providing an easily available solution and farmers will need no third person to detect crop diseases.
