In today’s climate of growing energy needs and increasing environmental concern, alternatives to the use of non-renewable and polluting fossil fuels have to be investigated. One such alternative is solar energy. In Solar based grass cutter, the advantage of powering a grass cutter by solar rather than by gasoline is mainly ecological. A self-powered objective is to come up with a cutter that is portable, durable, easy to operate and maintain. It also aims to design a self-powered cutter of electrical source; a cordless electric grass mower. The heart of the machine is a battery powered electric DC motor.
The present technology commonly used for trimming the grass is by using a manual handle device as shown above. In this project we have automated the machine for trimming the grass. Proposed design as follows:
This project provides a design method of an automated grass cutter operated on solar power whose task is to cut grass with no need of user interaction .This task is expected to be made possible by using sensors to provide an Arduino with controlling. The obstacle is automatically avoided ,here for obstacle avoidance the different sensors are used. The proposed system will be cost efficient with higher reliability. Due to power demand we chose solar energy which is a renewable source of energy and hence there is no running cost.
