Traditionally these dual axis panels are outfitted with costly motors and controllers to do the rotating.
But now the rugged -- -- does the heavy lifting.
Just like a physician goes from one patient and -- and monitors depletion and it -- that chart.
The slow -- go someone tracker to the next and is able to monitor everything about it tracker and send it back to us.
Here's a missile -- works okay so the so -- does not approaching and it will pull up and align itself to the station.
-- pistons tool stick out engaged the dog years to the system.
The computer on board knows exactly where the sun -- an -- just -- -- elevation appointments.
And an assault on the zones and an excellent just keeps him personally or about five seconds her --
Two sold bots will work every track and the alternates -- one is adjusting the panels for forty minutes the other won't charge -- a docking station just like this.
And that forty minutes one soul but can manage up to 200 panels or 300 kilowatts of energy.
Our system a source scalable and it's designed -- modules.
That you can build anything from.
-- sold -- is compatible with all types of dual axis solar panels and is designed to withstand extreme temperatures.
Efficient and inexpensive to deploy the engineers -- -- -- -- are banking on this bright idea.
