This paper reviews the design, development and applications of a multipurpose agricultural robot designed for soil ploughing, irrigation and fertilizer spraying based on real time data inputs from the various sensors attached to it. Powered by batteries or solar energy or sometimes both, the agri-bots are generally controlled via Bluetooth, allowing user- friendly interaction. Given that 40% of the global population engages in agriculture, the interest in autonomous agricultural vehicles has surged. These robots offer hands-free operation and quick data input, potentially outperforming traditional large tractors by using multiple light, compact autonomous machines. This study aims to demonstrate how such robots can enhance productivity and reduce labor costs in farming.
