Task: Design & build a solar tracker that follows the sun's position to optimize solar charging speed.
Position: Project Lead
How it Works:
- We obtain the amount of sunlight received using voltage values calculated from mounted photoresistors
- Photoresistors report data to an Arduino which determines the optimum angle to receive the sun's rays.
- Arduino sends data to motor drivers which control motors and thus the angle of the solar panels
