Abstract: Recently, ICT technology such as information technology and automatic control technology has been applied into agriculture, and the era of conversion to smart agriculture aimed at improving productivity and improving quality of agriculture has been reached. In particular, it is required to develop a technology that maximises productivity through growth and quality control based on optimised parameters for each cultivated crop by applying a new automatic control system to the existing traditional agricultural field. In this paper, we propose and design a controller module of agriculture planter applying ICT convergence techniques in order to control rotating speed of various devices in real-time. The planters with the controller are useful for saving time than the existing planters which has been dependent on mechanical type.

Keywords: agricultural machinery; smart farming; ICT convergence farm machinery; agriculture planters.
