Solar Tracker

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
