The Development of the Fruit Palm Fall Collector Machine (FPFCM)
The agricultural activities are always associated with dangers and injuries especially in oil palm farms. This is because most workers are still using the old ways to collect the leafy fruits. This may result in Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) and may take a long time. The project focuses more on the development of automated collector robots using intelligent sensors and is developed to assist the collection of fragmented fruits with their own moving mechanism without human assistance. In order for the robot to work properly, motor movement and sensor sensitivity need to operate at maximum speed. These robots are a great help to oil palm businessmen, carrying out complex tasks and taking short time automatically.
