Motion planning has spawned a large literature that is surveyed by several scholars. This research is a part of smart farm system in the framework of precision agriculture. This project summarizes portion that is related to path planning for a mechatronics based multifunctional vehicle. The vehicle tracking system employs the Global Positioning System (GPS) and ZigBee wireless network based on mesh topology to make the system communicate covering a large area. Router nodes are used for re-transmission of data in the network. Software was developed for acquiring data from the vehicle, storing data and displaying in real time on a web site. The rationale of developing this prototype is to make use of it in miscellaneous fields. The fields of interest include agriculture, military, space explore and investigations. The key endeavour is to develop a micro robot in the prospect with the identical functionalities of this prototype.
