Two Axis Solar Tracking System Using Msp430

Hi guys. I want to show you my solar tracking system project. The system can move along two different axis. I used 4 LDR light sensor for sensing light and 2 servo motor for giving positions according to values read from sensor. 4 sensor are grouped as 2 sensor couple. The analog signals taken from LDR sensors are converted to digital signal with using MSP430G2553. Each sensor couple values are compared independently and give direction one servo motor.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

This is my solar tracking system circuit diagram. I used Proteus circuit development program. In this program there is no MSP430G series library. Because of this , I used another MSP430 circuit diagram for showing circuit connections. But I used MSP430G2553 in my project

    I try to fixed the problem about code. You can use ''dual axis servo solar tracking_v2''

    the code, when built on CCS shows the errors:

    1) Expected a declaration

    2) This kind of pragma may not be used here.

    Pls suggest changes to the code, Thanks

    When I had design this code , I had used CCS v5. These errors may cause because of this. Now , I tried working the code in CCS v6 and I am faced with similar mistakes. After I will fix these problem , I will give feedbacks
