dc.description.abstractThe main objective of this research project was to understand the disc-soil-planter interaction in order to provide the lowest draft force for robotic planters. For that purpose, an analytical investigation was conducted and the mathematical model of the interaction was developed. Then a series of experimental tests were completed and reported. This constitutes the thesis’ contribution to research in this area. Finally, optimization of parameters was investigated to minimize the drag force.
