This is an automatic single axis solar tracker. Here LDR is used for sensing the sun light direction. The LDR voltage is sensed by microcontroller and it sends signals to motor driver circuit to rotate the solar panel to the direction of sun light.
See how to make your own home-made solar tracker. It's easy and effective. No special electronics or programming needed. Great for use with a solar panel system or a maintenance-free solar oven. Here is a link for the wiring diagram for the solar cells and 12VDC motor: https://youtu.be/vvZ4DnvYhXo Here is a link to a kit that includes the motor, solar cells and turntable: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/272385153619?

This video describes how I built my tracking drive system and details the automatic tracking of the sun. My system is a 10kW solar system in installed myself.
How can photovoltaic (solar electric) panels be made cost-effective today? Get 40% more energy from each panel, and reduce system cost by 20% or more!
Very simple solar tracking Device that I came up with, its vary simple and cheap to make. I came up with this idea after playing with hobby servo . Its possible to feed the servo with solar panel attach to is. You don't need any microcontroller to track the sun with this device. By the whey I recorded this video with cannon HV20 . Click on the 1080p resolution .
http://www.windynation.com/ This is a short video showing our Suntura Solar Tracker. The Suntura Solar Tracker is a dual axis solar tracker which follows the sun from sunrise to sunset. By following the sun, the Suntura Solar Tracker can increase solar panel efficiency by up to 40%. Order yours today at www.windynation.com
Last week, I was in Linz, Austria for the Ars Electronica Festival, an interdisciplinary showcase for technology-driven arts and science innovation projects of all kinds. Walking down one of the picturesque, Upper Austrian city’s 18th century cobblestone streets lined with Euro-chic shops and cafes, I came upon a gigantic metal sunflower parked in the middle of the roadway. This object turned out not to be a whimsical sculpture, but a portable, plug-and-play solar power unit. An on-site demonstration showed off its several innovations. At the touch of a button, a large solar panel surface unfolds, automatically turning toward the sun. At sunset, the unit folds up its panels, cleans itself, and stores itself in a housing for protection from the elements. Smartflower produces forty percent ...
This is a dual axis tracking system that I build for a rural community that was sponsored by the good people of USA thank you This system pumps water for them via solar power I used an normal truck hub and one gear motor 24V DC gear ratio 1:575 that is link via chain as seen in video (West - East ) And a linear actuator also 24V Dc with a push force of 6000N (North-South ) 6 panels of 230W for a normal 3 phase 0.75Kw bore hole pump at 60M 1500L/h
