Abstract:
An embedded system for detecting choking of boot of a maize planter has been developed (in laboratory). This system comprised a direct incidence infrared sensor for detection of choking of the boot of a maize planter with maize seeds and an Arduino uno board for receiving the input signals from the sensors. Based on these input signals and with the help of proper code, the Arduino UNO provided output signals (both visual and audible). Direct incidence IR sensor was installed to the fabricated cone shaped G.I. pipe which was then attached in between the boot and seed tube of the maize planter. At different seed rate (18,22,25,29 kg/ha) and at different metering plate RPM (6,14,22,30) an average time delay (Time between actual choking started and choking detected by sensor) in the detection of choking was varied from 3300 – 9500 MS.
