Final Project proposal

My final project proposal is to create a robot that randomly disperses native plant seeds in an environment requiring reclamation or in need of repopulation of a certain species.

I am deeply inspired by the work of Hayao Miyazaki, notably by his graphic novel series, "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind", which depicts a human caused apocalyptic world. Due to man's pollution, all the seas are poisoned, most life is gone, and only the poison forests known as the sea of corruption and its deadly insects survive.

the "Arbor-tree-tor's" goal is to create a low cost low impact tool to help maintain biodiversity for the Earth. the Arbortreetor is solar powered, small to medium sized, and blends into the environment around it.

Currently I am still debating the exact form it will take. it will either be an aerial, ground, or canon like robot. The first two will scatter seeds, while the last idea would launch seed bombs almost like a mortar.
