Abstract : The World Health Organization estimates that there are 3 million cases of pesticide poison in each year and up to 220,000 deaths, primarily in developing countries. Organophosphates and carbonates, affect the nervous system. Others may irritate the skin or eyes. Some pesticides maybe carcinogens Others may affect the hormone or endocrine system in the body. Children, and indeed any young and developing organisms, are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of pesticides. Even very low levels of exposure during development may have adverse health effects. Pesticide exposure can cause a range of neurological health effects such as memory loss, loss of coordination, reduced speed of response to stimuli, reduced visual ability, altered or uncontrollable mood and general behavior, and reduced motor skills. An Automated Aerial Pesticide Sprayer is a basically a combination of a Blimp on a Quad copter frame. This project is to mainly overcome the ill-effects of pesticides on human beings(manual pesticide sprayers) and also to cover larger areas of fields while spraying pesticides in a short span of time when compared to a manual sprayer.
