An array of battery-powered automatons might zoom along monorails that are installed in solar panels; changing individual angles of the panels to enable them pursue the sun when crossing the skies. This might be less expensive as compared to installing actuators on each solar panel to enable them follow the sun, going by a novel robotics creation. Automatons might make everything simpler!
A firm known as QBotix projects to design solar panels to be more affordable and efficient, based upon their infrastructure that is one the major challenges of technology. Immobile solar panels do not collect the sun to its maximum since it is normally on the move. Instead, they might be created to pursue the path of the sun across the sky, just like the sunflowers, gathering light throughout the day as contrasted to only the few hours when it strikes down at the right angle. However, this is quite expensive.
Transporting the panels with highest efficiency needs transporting them on double waxes-tilting sideways and forwards to precisely pursue the sun. However, it is both expensive and not easy to install heavy and large solar panels which might move on double waxes. You require controls and motor, except when you require the workers to haul them throughout the day.
QBotix says it may create a 2-axis solar panel for a cost of a one-axis one, and advance the capture of energy from the solar panels by impressive 15%, all through utilizing robot instead. This concept lies on a pair of independent robots known as Solbot R-200.
This pair (one the main robot, the other a backup) might sustain solar panels enough to produce 300KW of electricity. They could be placed on plain monorails that may be installed in any solar panel that includes on rolling hills and uneven surfaces. The automatons would regulate every array the entire day to make sure it follows the sun. A single robot may regulate up to 200 arrays per 40 minutes. That is the time it takes the sun to travel ten degrees across the sky. The alternative robot recharges while its counterpart is working.
