Training Program on IOT and Robotics in Agriculture and Smart Farming

 Training Program on IOT and Robotics in Agriculture and Smart Farming


The combination of Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics has immense potential in transforming agriculture and enabling smart farming practices. Here are some applications of IoT and robotics in agriculture and smart farming:

 Precision Farming: IoT sensors can be deployed throughout the farmland to monitor and collect data on various parameters such as soil moisture, temperature, humidity, nutrient levels, and weather conditions. This information can be used to optimize irrigation, fertilization, and pest control, resulting in improved crop yields and resource efficiency.

 Automated Irrigation Systems: IoT-based irrigation systems can utilize sensors and weather data to automatically adjust watering schedules based on real-time moisture levels in the soil. This helps prevent overwatering or underwatering, conserving water and reducing costs.

 Crop Monitoring and Management: Drones equipped with cameras and sensors can be used for aerial imaging and monitoring of crops. These drones can capture high-resolution images, detect plant diseases, nutrient deficiencies, or pest infestations. Farmers can then take targeted actions to address these issues, improving crop health and reducing losses.

 Livestock Monitoring: IoT sensors can be attached to livestock to monitor their health, location, and behavior. This enables farmers to remotely track the well-being of their animals, detect signs of illness or distress, and optimize feeding and breeding practices.

 Robotic Farming: Agricultural robots can perform various tasks such as planting, harvesting, weeding, and spraying. These robots can be equipped with computer vision systems to identify and selectively target crops or weeds, minimizing the use of herbicides and improving efficiency.

 Supply Chain Management: IoT devices can be used to monitor storage conditions, such as temperature and humidity, during transportation and storage of agricultural products. This helps ensure optimal conditions and reduce spoilage, increasing the quality and shelf life of the produce.

 Farm Management Systems: IoT platforms and software solutions enable farmers to centralize and analyze data collected from various sources, providing valuable insights for decision-making. These systems can integrate data from sensors, weather forecasts, and market trends, assisting farmers in optimizing resource allocation, crop rotation, and predicting yields.

 Environmental Monitoring: IoT sensors can be deployed to monitor environmental factors such as air quality, soil erosion, and water quality in and around the farm. This data can be used to ensure compliance with regulations, minimize environmental impact, and support sustainable farming practices.

 The integration of IoT and robotics in agriculture and smart farming offers significant advantages, including increased efficiency, reduced costs, optimized resource utilization, and improved sustainability. By leveraging these technologies, farmers can make data-driven decisions, enhance productivity, and contribute to the development of a more sustainable food production system.

About the skill internship: 

         VRITIKA’ is the call for initiation and practice in science through Training and Skill Internship. This program aims to provide opportunities to promising PG students from universities and colleges to get exposure and hands-on research skill development experience. Internships focuses on the applications of IoT (Internet of Things) and robotics in agriculture and smart farming that can provide valuable hands-on experience for postgraduate students. These internships allow students to apply their theoretical knowledge to real-world projects, gain practical skills, and enhance their understanding of emerging technologies in the agricultural sector


Eligibility and selection: 

   Motivated students currently pursuing their Post-graduate/ M.S./ M.E./ M. Tech./ Ph.D. degree in any engineering discipline or Masters/PhD in agricultural and allied fields from reputed Institutions/ Universities of India and are interested in making career, doing projects or pursuing research in the field of IoT and Robotics and its applications in Agricultural sector. Five (5) candidates would be selected based on criteria decided by duly formed committee for the purpose. Candidates may also be interviewed based on recommendations of the committee.

Venue: College of Agricultural Engineering & Technology SKUAST-K Shalimar Srinagar J&K.
