Detailed Review:

In summer due to less availability of greenery birds try to feed on the farmers fruit plants like mango, guava, figs, pomegranate, papaya, Sapota, custard apple, etc. In order to protect them from birds biting an innovative device need to set to flew-away birds from the gardens. In the below figure guava fruits are bite by the wood beakers, parrots, sparrows, squirrels, rats, etc. Farmers are visiting to agricultural institutes to find the solution for the issues So I am planing to design innovative device to help the farmers to protect their plants in my ways like watering, flew-away birds, tiny creatures, etc. This kind of issues is not in one area they are in entire globe facing by farmers at the time of harvest.


The roadtest is providing an important SAM D21 Curiosity Nano Evaluation Kit to quickly scale and prototype for my innovative design. This roadtest is giving me a chance to utilize the combine hardware for my innovation idea to propose a project to design an smart farmers fruit plants protector with the tiny Microchip MCU.


The Hardware received and required for the project are Shown in the below figure.
