Abstract. This paper outlines the stages in the development of an integrated modular system for agricultural robots through distinct concepts, designs, and analyses of the outcomes. The integrated modular system must be developed and produced to the highest standards for all probable situations and obstacles in diverse agricultural activities in order to improve an efficient autonomous agricultural robotic modular system. The agricultural robot is designed in accordance with design principles to produce a final product. Design concepts were made, and then a virtual prototype was created in SolidWorks with the necessary dimensions to simulate the dynamic simulation and working space, and the prototype. The finite element analysis of the integrated modular system for agricultural robots test based on the stress, strain, deformation, and mechanical analysis simulations carried out in SolidWorks, uses the virtual model as an input to verify the impact and mechanical properties. The primary objective of this study is to create a high-quality integrated modular system useful for developing supplementary agriculture tools and operations. In this study, modeling and analysis of an integrated modular system for agricultural robots are reported. The modular system is modeled in 3D using the software SolidWorks, and its static structural analysis is performed using SolidWorks. To determine the deformation, stresses, strains, and forces that the loads have on the structures, a static-structural analysis is carried out. Under static structural analysis, the following results for a modular system made were obtained: equivalent von-mises stress, total deformation, and equivalent von-mises strain.
