—Watering robots powered by solar panels, the
robot automatically detect the soil moisture. When the soil
moisture not conducive to plant growth, the robot automatically
along designated routes to watering flower, until to satisfy the
appropriate soil moisture, stop watering and return to the
starting point. Experiments show that, the automatic watering
robot has the advantages of simple operation and convenient
use, satisfied the automation and intelligent of modern life.
