What is this course about?

Solar Trackers are devices which will automatically orient in the direction of high intensity sunlight to effectively harness maximum solar power. In this course, you will develop an Automatic Solar Tracker using a solar panel, light-dependent resistor (LDR) and DC Motors based on Arduino platform. When the sun moves, the LDR sensor senses a reduction in light intensity forcing the DC Motors to adjust solar panel accordingly in the direction of high intensity. When compared to a fixed solar panel, this tracking system produces 40% more energy!

By building this project, you will practically learn about working of solar energy systems, harnessing of solar energy in a smart way and Arduino programming. You will also work with photoresistors in electronic systems and control DC Motors using programming.

Course Outcomes

  • Learn how automatic solar panel tracking works
  • Work with photoresistor sensors and DC motors
  • Get hands-on experience on Arduino development and programming
  • Write programming logic for working of the solar tracker
  • Build the solar tracker chassis and assemble sensors, motors, Arduino board
  • Test solar tracker to automatically follow the direction of highest light intensity

Kit Content

  • Arduino Uno board
  • UART cable
  • DC Motors
  • Motor Driver
