Coconut, Areca nut and their products have been in use for decades and have become an essential part of day to day life all around the globe, but the percentage population taking up coconut & areca nut plucking as their means of living is steadily decreasing. Moreover tree climbing involves a lot of risk. Autonomous plucking machine is a solution for this.The aim of the project is to design a coconut & areca nut plucking machine which can be replaced with the men climbing coconut and areca nut trees. The machine should be able to control from the ground. The operation should be simple so that even an illiterate person can operate the machine with a little training. It should be safe to handle and at the same time, it should be eco-friendly and should not damage the tree from which it is plucking. And most importantly it should be simple and cost effective so that the normal people can afford it.
