Hybrid Arduino controlled solar tracker. The simplistic Solar tracker control using a Arduino UNO #ArduinoD16
Aceman307 shared his first Arduino project on Youtube !
My first project using a Arduino UNO to control my solar tracker.
This solar tracker could easily be modified to be a two axis tracker.
The tracker uses time to track the position of the sun during the day.
I have found using time instead of a light sensor is a more reliable and easier way to track the sun.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
