Innovation is progressing at a quick pace so it is required to utilize it in an each fields to have the coveted and appropriate yield. Present day's robots are winding up plainly more well-known and are progressively depend upon embrace schedule, regularly dull errands which are costly to do utilizing generously compensated labor. Because of the expanded populace and urbanization less space found for cultivating particularly in urban regions. There is a need of self-creating of slightest individual prerequisites. To fulfill ordinary demand in green vegetables and love towards their indoor and outside plants can be expert through urban rooftop gardening. This paper clarifies essential assignments of checking and detailing the development status of plants in urban rooftop gardening. We execute the customary checking of plants development. Height of the plant is one of the parameter to decide the growth of the plant. The tallness of the plant is more than the predetermined typical height in the program; robot shows that as overgrown, if there is no development discovered robot will show that as vacant slot. For identifying the development of the plant we utilize Sharp GP2D12 sensor, three white line sensors of ATMEGA 2560 FIREBIRD V to take after the arena of cultivation slots.
