Amaran - Unmanned Robotic Coconut Tree Climber and Harvester

There is an acute shortage of human coconut tree climbers to harvest coconuts. Coconut tree farmers, individuals who own few coconut trees and coconut industry suffer a lot due to this shortage. Coconuts could not be harvested on time. The price of coconuts and coconut products are increasing day by day and consumers are unhappy. We propose Amaran, an unmanned robotic coconut tree climber and harvester with IoT enabled and can be controlled remotely using wireless technology.
