Challenge yourself to design and build an innovative agri-robot capable of precisely sowing seeds in the ground. You will code the robot's navigation system to ensuring accurate seed placement. This task promises to ignite your problem-solving skills and engineering prowess.

But that's not all! Once your agri-robot is up and running, the adventure continues with an exhilarating twist. Harness the power of technology as you program a colour sensing camera to develop a spot sprayer. This will effectively target and extinguish all the unwanted weeds.

This is the perfect blend of agriculture and engineering, where imagination meets practicality.
