Tree-Planting Robot


Entry ID #: 968
Created: Tue, Jan 8, 2013 9:27 PM

Basically, this robot is designed do dig small holes along a desired path which is programmable by the user. It has an accelerometer to prevent tipping, and optical quad encoders to more accurately measure distance. What it does, is it digs a certain amount of holes at the desired distance from eachother, and when complete, returns to its starting position and waits four you to put small trees, seeds, or whatever you want to plant in the hole, then it goes back along the path filling the holes with dirt and patting them down.
