Solar Powered Mirror Bot

05/20/2009 Category: Basic, Project, Robotic


This solar powered artbot based on Solar Engine. The circuit consist of two transistors, one flashing led, one resistor, one capacitor. If there is a light the mirror will rotate and if no light the mirror will stop. I think, It’s nice and fun solar powered electronic project.

Solar Engine is At the heart of most solar-powered robots is a circuit called the solar engine (variously called Solar Engines, solarengines, SEs; a.k.a,relaxation oscillators). The purpose of a solar engine is to act like a power “savings account” — a small trickle of incoming energy is saved up until a useable amount is stored. This stored energy is then released in a burst, in order to drive some useful work.
