In the modern world, people are adopting to new technologies to improve their lifestyles. Human Computer Interaction is a popular topic nowadays. Ag(ro)2bot is a farm care system for green house which incorporates Human Computer Interaction. The main Objective of the research is to enhance the activities of a Green house. Therefore an automated intelligent farm care system for Green house was developed. The system has automatic intelligence to care Greenhouse according to the atmospheric condition. Soil moisture sensor, humidity & temperature sensor and IR sensor are used to track the conditions. These sensors are attached with Arduino UNO which controls the overall system. A technology called line following is used to move Ag(ro)2bot within the Green house. The Automated intelligent farm care for Green house System (Ag(ro)2bot) result increased and efficient productivity by minimizing wastage, time, effort and farmer's health issues.
