Design & Development of Agricultural Fertilizer Spraying Drone with Remote Controller and Autonomous Control with low weight Aluminium Alloy frame Structure

Vikrant Krishna Suryawanshi, Dr. J. Ashok, Sumit Ashok Rajmane, Snehal Shivaji Mali


The Drone is a unique type of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) which has Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) ability. The World Health Organization estimates there are over one million chemical cases in each year. There in over one large integer deaths in every year, particularly in developing countries, the pesticides sprayed by soul and handling of pesticides. The health effects of pesticides such as embody respiratory disorder, allergies and hypersensitivity, and chemical exposure to cancer, endocrine disruption and issues with replica and craniates.Other pesticides may be irritated the skin and eyes. More pesticides are very dangerous carcinogens. Other pesticides are also affects on the internal secretion and system of the body. The low levels of exposure throughout spraying might have ends up in health effects. chemical exposure will cause a large vary of medicine health effects in body like state of mind, loss of coordination, reduced speed of response, reduced visual ability, altered or uncontrollable mood and general behaviour. Agricultural fertilizer spraying drone used for reducing time and human efforts. This project mainly concentrates on designing a low weight aluminium structure for the drone that sprays fertilizer for farming. Also describe the how to design and develop the Spaying mechanism with quad copter system.
