Solar energy is the heat and light radiations received from the Sun. It is one of the most abundant forms of non-conventional, renewable energy source found on the Earth. It is readily available, free of cost and is pollution free. Solar energy can be harnessed to be changed into electricity and power by the use of devices like solar panels which consists of photovoltaic cells. Photovoltaic cell is an electrical device which converts sun's light into electricity by the property of photoelectric

In this project we have used solar energy in the process of grass cutting of lawns, fields etc. The lawn mower is dual controlled first by the pc and other by the Bluetooth module. The pc controlling employs the real time monitoring system by the LabView software. LabView is used for the live coverage of the lawn / fields along with the values of voltages developed in the photovoltaic cell during the course of the day. This real time monitoring system would help to efficiently utilize the solar power developed in the system. The solar lawn mower when Bluetooth controlled can be operated from anywhere within the Bluetooth signal range by the mobile phone of the owner.
