The energy crisis stands out as a critical issue in today’s world. Not only are modern electronics limited in quantity, but they are also costly, contributing significantly to environmental pollution. Escalating fossil fuel prices and environmental concerns have shifted focus towards renewable energy, with solar energy emerging as a rapidly popular and clean option. It offers both private and public organizations opportunities to reduce their carbon footprint. To optimize solar panel benefits, this article introduces an automatic solar tracking device capable of determining the sun’s position. The project prioritizes efficiency, considering the impact of the solar panel’s vertical alignment with the sun’s rays. The article details the design, implementation, and operation of dual-axis solar tracking system, a pivotal advancement in solar energy technology aimed at maximizing solar panel efficiency by precisely aligning them to the sun’s movement in both the azimuthal and zenithal directions.
