Abstract

People heavily rely on large-scale farms to grow and ship produce to their local markets. This has become an issue today due to the high transportation costs associated with bringing copious amounts of produce to crowded urban areas. The goal was to design an automated farming system that alleviates these issues. The constructed model focused on the caring aspects of the overall system. This prototype has proven the feasibility of the system's design to save space while reducing crop costs.
