The sun lovin solar panel. A project i started to learn about arduino. Version 1 is more like a proof o concept to myself. The goal is to make it self sufficient.
So i decided to build a new solarpanel. The last one was a little beta. This one rests on the same principle as the last one.
Differences are as follows:
1: Arduino pro mini replaces arduino nano from the last version
2: Kind of equatorialy mounted. Should lower servo usage.
3: Super capacitors replaces LIPO-batterys. Much simpler
4: Added a real time clock.
I haven't writen all the code yet. Feel free to try. The goal is to limit power usage.
Test with basic driver code! http://youtu.be/yTG1zYnWniA?list=UUuw7dxgWVBNh-N-Q819tEfg
