•We are offering a solution for gardening problems which is an agriculture robot.

•iRobot knows when the plant needs watering and other many essential plant’s needs.

•The main point of our work is to make it easier for people to take care of their gardens.

•Our long-term goal is to develop an autonomous green house in which all tasks are performed automatically.

•Gardening robot will control the use of pesticides.

•Watering will be delivered on demand which will benefit in reducing water consumption.

Robot characteristics
Intelligence: A robot needs some kind of "smarts." This is where programming enters the pictures. Our programmers gave the robot its “Brain”.
Energy: A robot needs to be able to power itself. Our robot will be solar powered, battery powered when there is no sunlight available on long periods, and electrically powered for charging.
Sensing: Our robot will sense its surroundings. The robot is equipped with sensors: light sensors (eyes) so he is aware of the distance of the surroundings, touch and pressure sensors (hands) so he knows when it’s best to harvest the plants, chemical sensors (nose) detecting humidity and temperature, hearing and sonar sensors (ears) for voice commands.
Movement: A robot needs to be able to move around its environment. And our robot will be walking on wheels

Programming malfunctions
Robot's Failure
Likelihood: 3
Impact: 4
Detection Difficulty: 3
When: No power generation
Response: Mitigate repair mechanical parts
Contingency plan: Supply power to the robot
Trigger: Robot heavily damaged
Hazardous Substances
Likelihood: 2
Impact: 5
Detection Difficulty: 1
When: During robot functioning
Response: Mitigate repair damaged parts
Contingency plan: Stop the robot from working
Trigger: Robot shuts down
Likelihood: 3
Impact: 3
Detection Difficulty: 4
When: during executing
Response: Mitigate Debugging
Contingency plan: hire high experienced programmers
Trigger: Increase in the cost
* Electrical, mechanical, sensorial, programming and design departments cooperation
* Equip the robot with sensors and parts, then check their calibration
* Programming the Robots tasks
* Put safety measurements
* Build a simple robot base for test

* Put the robot in a test field
* Test the robot and check for programming, structure, and design
* Identify any problem and solve it
* Check if the robot is in high efficiency level
* Monitor robot's functionality during environment changes
* Start to build a robot that can be delivered to customers
* Check for customers needs
* Start the marketing campaign
* Review customers satisfaction
* Supply customers with the offered customer service including maintenance and teaching them about the basic tasks of the robot
