In order to avoid various problems which affect agricultural fields, agricultural electrical vehicle is needed, to fulfil the objectives like weed detection, irrigation, crop protection and Bug Spray. This paper illustrates the design aspects of electric vehicle which is eco-friendly in nature and automated. The various technologies used are sensor technology and IoT. Sensors used are temperature, humidity, LDR, Ultrasonic, Soil moisture, IR, and Rainfall sensor. IoT technology includes Bluetooth module and image processing object detection. The embedded controllers used are Raspberry Pi and Arduino. Servo and Geared DC motors are used for traction. The designed EV not only uses battery power but also uses renewable energy in order to perform all its operations. The proposed model is cost effective and reliable, also suitable for linear agricultural applications.
