Abstract

The aim of the project is to develop a GPS based system interfaced with the ATMEGA328P micro-controller to determine the exact position of the Sun, which will be then used as the input to determine position of the solar panel. The solar panel converts the energy from the Sun into the electric signal which is then used to charge a 12V Lithium battery.
