Hybrid Land Ploughing Tractor

K. Dhivya, S. Darffini, M. Yogaraj, N. Nandha Kumar, S. Hari Prasath


The paper aims on the development of renewable energy resources is an alternate for fossil fuels. The tractor use DC motor instead of combustion engine which act as a hybrid vehicle by using power from solar panel and EB supply. The system is used for land plougher operation and soil moisture sensing, then the controller controls the movements of the tractor by wireless controls. Additionally the soil moisture level in the land is sensed and displayed.


Fossil Fuel, Solar Panel, Lead Acid Battery, Soil Moisture Sensor.
