Arduino Solar Tracker

Arduino is 10 years old! In celebration we will feature a project today that uses an Arduino at the core. Solar panels are most efficient when they are pointed directly at the sun but since its position moves across the sky all day the only way to do this is with a solar tracking device. This Arduino Solar Tracker provides the tracking using LDR sensors to detect where the best position of the panel is.
