Intelligent Shovel / Gardening Utility

Intelligent Shovel
Intelligent Shovel

Right trees should be in the right place, or the trees won’t bring any benefit to the environment. The selection of tree species is very important. In this new proposed design of shovel set, the GPS/GSM, GIS and Bluetooth modules are integrated into them. Through positioning and information connection, the bigger shovel can show which tree species is the most favorable to your local condition, and then deliver the information to the smaller one via the Bluetooth communication. It can remind you everything as a diligent gardener during the tree planting. You can enjoy planting with your kids and teach them the correct idea about tree-planting.
