He hails from the Baran district hidden away in Rajasthan. This young man is the inventor of the brand new, infamous Driverless tractor.

Ram Babu, Yogesh’s father used to complain about getting a stomach pain and leg pain from driving the tractor on their farm. The college student Yogesh, was unable to be a farm hand due to his academic responsibilities but couldn’t watch his father work in pain either. And thus began his journey to solve this problem.

He researched how remote controls work, collected all materials that were needed and connected the device to a satellite. As he observed that the device was working, with the help of his friends and his father, he raised about Rs. 50,000 and designed a remote.
