An easy solution for the common issues in traditional underground sprinklers

One of the big problems I found in traditional irrigation systems through underground sprinklers is that once positioned, the sprinklers are not only difficult to adjust but any garden furniture placed later can stop them from working by hiding them.The consequence is that some areas are not watered or others are watered excessively.The solution is very simple ... AQABOT! A PAN / TILT system that simulates the human movement but better :)The first phase consists in programming the unit: through a joystick it is possible to direct the jet of water to the desired position and by means of a button to mark this position of interest. Iterating this simple procedure, this information is saved on an SD card going to compose a list of points of interest.In the following run mode AQABOT executes the program step by step going over the saved path.

joystick used to move the water jet, of course the programming must be done in the field not in my kitchen

You are right! :)

would be amazing! it could be an interesting development ... the detection of a position to hit .. maybe based on the analysis of a photograph taken by an ipcam present in the home lan.

Oh my, that looks like way more fun as a turret gun to keep animals out of the garden. Or the neighbor kids - get off my lawn!
