Abstract. We have developed an exoskeleton robot for agriculture. It assists farmers in harvesting vegetables and fruits, and carrying the heavy load such as potato bags and cabbage boxes. We have made the robots for some types of farming and discussed the sensors and control of it. We have also performed experiments in order to demonstrate how the robot operates for agricultural purposes thereby showing the potential of the robot
