Introduction: Arduino Solar Tracker Using LEDs!

So I recently came across a bit of information I had forgotten. LEDs generate a bit of voltage when under illumination of a range of wave lengths. Time to exploit this oddity to make a DIY solar tracker for my solar panels!

The code can be found over at my website, along with updates that will be posted when I start the actual tracker to hold my pair of 120w solar panels, and other projects I'm working on!

This Instructable and the ones before it were not intended to be such, so details on construction and in process pictures do not exist. As I plan to post actual Instructables as I move forward on this and other projects, these are things I will keep in mind. Thanks for your patience :)

Hi. Good way to track the sun using LEDs. Can you put on the schematics/wiring instruction for this project?
