Solar Tracker

Solar Tracker

I built a solar tracker like this one modified to use my Arduino. If you haven’t seen any videos by ScienceOnline before, you’re in for a real treat! Check out their website too http://hilaroad.com/ for some more great ideas and scientific knowledge.

This was my first real Arduino project and I think it went rather well. I learned a lot but now I really need to get out in the sun to do some real testing. I’d still like to use this to power some other projects and / or add some other features… so many empty pins on that RBBB board.
