artifact description
The use of a highly portable, efficient solar tracker can be very useful to applications of the military, industrial, and residential variety. To produce an efficient solar generation system, a scaled down dual-axis solar tracker was designed, built and tested. At most, the solar tracker was able to track the light source within 3 degrees of precision.
