Cultivation of exotic crops using greenhouse automation

In the current world the system of automation is the era defining technology, the vision of our future and will cause the next manufacturing revolution. The automation systems are taking over the tedious work load to ease the burdens of their owners as these systems are able to detect, analyze, notify and control the atmosphere around it accordingly. These fantasies of a smarter planet where smart systems can do the hum drum routine jobs for the humanity and bring the ethical peace of working in our overall system is being developed bit by bit. And when it comes to an important factor, like agriculture, if the automation system is applied successfully in the area, it can boom the growth of the crops. In this paper, we are representing the idea that we can boost the growth of crops by manipulating the environmental parameters responsible for the growth of plants by designing an automated greenhouse. Moreover, our aim is to go one step further than just creating an automated greenhouse. As the environmental parameters decide what crops and plants grow in an area and if we successfully control all the environmental parameters then we can not only grow the crops or trees indigenous to that area but also, we will grow any crops we want in any area. That means we can grow green crops in the middle of a desert or even we can grow exotic crops. Thus, in a nutshell, the purpose of this automation system is to influence the environmental parameters to help in cultivating all kinds of crops. The system is designed with three primitives of robotics: sense, plan, and act. Developing countries like ours can be developed if we can apply this automated system for crops.
