    Funded by: Ministry of Science and Technology, Bangladesh (July, 2022 ~June, 2023)

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: In this research project, a dual-axis solar tracker with a smart monitoring and control system for a solar-powered smart irrigation system has been proposed, where the pump will be operated based on sensing soil moisture and water level. This smart irrigation system will be powered by solar power integrated with a dual-axis sun tracker, which will generate more electricity compared to the fixed solar panel. Furthermore, monitoring of the pump operation will be accomplished remotely via smartphone. The overall objective of this research is to design and implement an IoT-based solar-powered smart irrigation system to reduce excess water usage, time, and fuel costs and to utilize a renewable energy source. Hence, this smart monitoring system can be used for effective and efficient use of the irrigation water for rice plants and save time and power through the automatic irrigation system. This research also aimed to develop a dual-axis solar tracker system to maximize electricity generation by exposing the solar rays most of the time of the day. The specific objectives are: • The design and implementation of an IoT-based solar-powered smart irrigation system by sensing the soil moisture levels and water level conditions of the field and automatically controlling the pump operations when the soil moisture is below the required level. • Develop a dual-axis solar tracker system to generate more electricity by tracking the orientation of the sunlight. • Establishment of remote monitoring of automatic pump operation via smartphone.

  4. Design and Fabrication of a Single-Row Maize Picker for Small Scale Farming in Bangladesh

    Funded by: Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Bangladesh (July, 2022 ~June, 2023)

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Maize picking is one of the most critical issues throughout maize cultivation which has not been mechanized in Bangladesh. The objective of this research is to design and fabricate a small-scale maize picker to improve and mechanize the picking practices of maize crops considering our agro-climatic conditions and cultivation practices. On a test bench, a prototype of a single-row maize picker will be fabricated considering average plant to plant distance of 20.0 cm, row-to-row distance of 75.0 cm, and height of 215.0 cm. Tow spiral roller, picking board, shafts, pully with various diameters (22.8 cm, 19.0 cm, 12.7 cm), and an electric motor (1.25 hp) will be used for determining the optimized parameters of the single row maize picker. Fabrication of the maize picker prototype will be carried out considering the optimized design from the lab-based performance tests. Field performance tests of the single-row prototype will be conducted in the three different maize fields. This research is a step forward in developing a self-propelled, power tiller or tractor-operated maize harvester. If successfully implemented, this research would facilitate the development of a multi-row power tiller or tractor-operated maize harvester.

  5. Solar-Powered Smart Irrigation System with Sun Tracking Solar Cell and Soil Moisture Sensors for Agricultural Field

    Funded by: Ministry of Science and Technology, Bangladesh

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Water management in irrigated agricultural fields is a critical issue in Bangladesh due to a lack of improved irrigation facilities for efficient use of irrigation water. Thus, the cost of crop production is high in agriculture with low agricultural productivity. Therefore, this research aimed to design and implement an IoT-based solar-powered smart irrigation system by sensing the soil moisture levels and weather conditions of the field and periodically controlling the pump operations when the soil moisture is below the required level. A sun-tracking solar system was also developed to generate more electricity by tracking the orientation of the sun. A comparison was made between the energy of a fixed-axis solar tracking system with a 24.950 tilt angle and a horizontal single-axis solar tracking system with no tilt angle. The designed single-axis solar tracker device tracks the sun using an LDRs sensor and orients the solar panel (150 watts) to the perpendicular of the sun to capture maximum energy, which is converted into electrical energy and stored in a battery (12V) for submersible pump (DC 12V, 150 watt) operation. This study implemented a wireless sensor network (WSN) with the Internet of Things (IoT) application for real-time monitoring of pumping status and energy comparison. One substation was established in a paddy field that sends water level data wirelessly to the main station, where the microcontroller processes and analyzes the data, and the relay module takes the action of the automatic pumping operation. This data was simultaneously sent to cloud storage. A Thingspeak server was used for data acquisition and to deliver data to the farmers through smartphones for better monitoring of water levels in the paddy field. There is a huge potential for solar irrigation systems in Bangladesh, and they can provide sustainable solutions with low irrigation costs. Therefore, this IoT-based solar-powered smart irrigation system could play a vital role in improving irrigation management systems with increased water use efficiency.

  6. Lab-Scale Prototype Design and Testing of a Corn Picker

    Funded by: Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Bangladesh

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: The picking of maize ears is one of the most critical issues throughout maize cultivation. Except for the threshing process, the maize cultivation stages have not been mechanized yet in Bangladesh. The objective of this research was to design and fabricate a lab-scale corn picker to determine the optimum design variables for the efficient picking of maize ears. An initial design of a test bench, roller, picking board, shafts, and pulleys has been done on SolidWorks software considering the maize cultivation methods and growth parameters of Bangladesh. A pulley diameter of 22.8 cm, 19.0 cm, and 12.7 cm were considered as design variables for selecting the optimum diameter of the pulley. An electric motor of 1.25 hp was used to determine the optimized parameters of the single-row maize picker. Fabrication of the lab-scale corn picker prototype was carried out in the workshop and AIE lab. A test bench was fabricated to test the picking performance of the proposed corn picker prototype. The lab-based performance test of the prototype was conducted on the test bench with maize plants to determine the efficient picking parameters. This research is a step forward in developing a small-scale maize picker to improve and mechanize the picking practices of maize crops considering our agro-climatic conditions and cultivation practices.
