Solar Based Smart Lawn Mower

2020 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Our lawn mower is a self grass cutting vehicle running on solar energy which avoiding obstacles, increases the capability of complete mechanized grass cutting devoid of any necessity of any human intervention. Our structure requires a couple of 12V batteries to influence up the motors of the blades and for the movement. Lawn mowing is regarded as one of the most boring or tiring everyday jobs. It is also very reliable private robotic applications. The principle of this paper is to study and

A brief survey of available products, some patents and typical test bed prototypes are also provided. Some enabling techniques that make the vehicles more efficient are also suggested. We have utilized a solar board i.e. solar panel to charge the batteries the lawn mower and robot motors are interfaced to an Arduino Uno which governs the implementation of each motor. It is additionally used to interface an ultrasonic sensor for obstacle recognition and IR sensors for stopping the vehicle. The importance of this research lies in the presentation of an overview of a potential big market for personal vehicles.
