Abstract

Farmers cultivate variety of vegetables while various fruits are produced by farmers practicing horticulture, this produce is sold to customers by various means. The quality and price are quantified according to the size thus it is essential for the farmer to sort out his produce according to size to earn accordingly. Sorting process is carried out manually, this makes the process slower, more labour intensive and not as effective as required. Thus, there is a need to mechanize this process to make it quick and effective. Hence, 'Design, and Manufacturing of Fruit or Vegetable sorting Machine' is taken as a project. By conducting literature review, it was identified that there is no machine available to perform sorting at medium scale, also the identified cost of machine is too high. To understand the user as a small-scale farmer, data collection project was carried out within small scale communities. Some of the problems revealed were, manual labour and Identified bias, easy to operate, also reducing the overall cost of machine. Automation in machine due to constraints in cost and simplicity is not preferred.
