Solar energy is by far among the best sources of energy from every perspective. But harvesting solar energy efficiently is not very easy because of the fact that the relative to the earth the sun is moving. The solar panels are mounted they are fixed in some direction, hence they can give maximum output only for the duration when the sun is directly perpendicular to them. This project is an attempt for providing a solution to the above problem. Using this project ths solar panels can be maintained perpendicular to the sun for almost the entire day. For achieving this, the need is to tilt the solar panel in the direction of motion of the sun. For this first the position of the sun is to be sensed then the panel is to be titled in that direction.
