Abstract

Internet of things and Drones are two new promising innovative technologies that are inevitable in the internet era. These technologies provide modern solutions for many fields. One of these fields is agriculture. Agriculture plays a pivot role for humankind because more than half of the World’s population depends on agriculture. In this study internet of things, technology is applied to a drone that is capable of doing agricultural works like spraying, carrying, and real-time monitoring. An onboard android device that is mounted on the drone is used to manage the drone over the internet by a graphical user interface software designed within the study. The farmer communicates with onboard android device over the internet by remote desktop application to manage drone and get data. The drone will help farmers by getting live data from the farm and do necessary works remotely. This study aims to enable farmers to do remote farming. Agricultural activities have declined in recent years with the increase in migration from the village to the city. Thus, farmers will be able to make remote farming.
