The Solbot returns to its home after completing its rounds
The Solbot travels to each individual solar panel on a special rail
The "Solbot" optimizes the orientation of the solar panel in relation to the sun
Although solar trackers can significantly increase the energy output of solar cells by keeping them optimally aligned to the sun, installing them on all the panels at an installation can add significant expense and provides multiple points of failure. A new tracking system from QBotix avoids these problems by getting a robot to do the rounds of the solar installation throughout the day and adjust the panels at 40-minute intervals to ensure they are optimally facing the sun.
