Smart Crop Harvesting System

Abstract: The proposed system is a crop harvesting system based on the Internet of Things (IoT), object recognition and automation technologies. The system helps to reduce the manual labor of the farmers by automating the identification and plucking of ripened fruit without a direct visit to the field. The system aims to reduce the tiresome tasks in the agricultural scenario. Harvesting using robotic arms reduces the amount of time spend by farmers in performing repetitive task. The proposed system includes object detection in the server side and harvesting using robotic arm in the hardware side.
