Abstract

Precision agriculture (PA) is nowadays one of the main strategies to fulfill the increasing food demand in the world. PA was defined as the set of technologies and procedures employed to optimize the agriculture production system. This article evaluate three types of rovers to be applied in precision agriculture, they are type Shrimp, Crab and Rocker Bogie. These rovers are modeled and simulated using parametric CAD software (Solid Works®) in order to assess their performance in terms of torque and power consumption. These physical variables would help in developing compact and autonomous agricultural rovers
