Wireless control? Answered

How to construct a simple remote controlled mount that will aim a mirror at sun to

reflect light at a target nearby. Need following circuit and also way to

turn device on/off. Fun project for winter time to reflect sunlight into

breakfast nook. Prefer to use Arduino Uno microcontroller.

It really depends how big the mirror is, but does not seem remarkably simple to me. Besides, it is outside the scope of this class. If you want to have a remote control class, I recommend suggesting it using the form at the bottom of this page:

Hi Lottasparks. There are some instructables solar trackers that may work for your project. I haven't yet performed them but they are on my todo list. I want to make a solar slow cooker so I can put in a crock pot in the morning and pull out dinner in the evening.


Randofo my son is excited about robots and I am excited to be going through your lessons. Thank you for putting them together.
