Most of the solar powered vehicles are powered using fixed solar panels placed on top of the vehicle, where the solar panel remains in the direction of vehicle irrespective of the direction of the sun. This project provides the best solution for this by aligning the tracker setup continuously toward the sun irrespective of the direction of the robot/vehicle. The project is PIC microcontroller based robot where the base of the robot can move in all directions and tracker-base itself will align…

Missile Detection and Automatic Destroy System

This proposed system uses an ultrasonic module interfaced to a microcontroller of 8051 family that receives the signal from ultrasonic receiver and activates the door gun by triggering the gate of MOSFET through a transistor or relay.
