Mechatronics Application in Determination of Soil Moisture Content in Farming
Mechatronics is playing a vital role in agriculture production. Image processing has a wide range of applications in the field of agriculture. Precision Agriculture (PA), site-specific soil monitoring using UAV is our goal. Farmers will be able to monitor the soil moisture content and the health of the crop in their single device itself. The rapidly increasing demand for food and scarcity of farmers/laborers can be reimbursed by this technology. We have not only implemented Image Processing with help of UAV but also, we are aiming to calculate the gravimetric moisture at different depths of the ground for diverse soil types.
