Abstract: Robotics is the human interface machine used for fulfill the desired work where human efforts are low. In General the design of a robot involves various types of analyses that invariably include structural, dynamic, kinematic and numerical experiments. A robot designed for weeding problems would have to consider the stages of plant growth. Initially prescribed description of the framework for proposed robot is provide the simplicity along with the known parameters of design. The primary design parameter of the robot and cutting mechanism establishes certain geometric and structural constrains on the design the worm gear, worm and blades which is attached with motors for comprising the cutting mechanism of the robot. This relationship is studied in order to improve the speed of cutting the weeds by image processing of camera for the differentiation of the weeds and plants by the robot. A significant reduction in size is achieved by working on these variables which leads to the improvement in the functional aspects and reduces the innovation of bigger machine used for these weeding purposes in modern world. There are 3 motors in which 2 motors are used for movement and 1 motor is used for actuating the cutting mechanism. This whole mechanism is controlled by Arduino UNO controller and MatLAB software. Arduino UNO controls the movement of the robot and the MatLAB software controls the differentiation of the plants and the weeds depending on the task allocated to the robot.
