It's an Arduino project controlling 2 linear actuators with 24v dc motors calculating the position of the sun on the sky using solar geometry http://www.pveducation.org/properties-of-sunlight/motion-of-sun
One motor for Elevation and the other for azimuth.
Schematics available in video.

And you need some guidance for what? Maybe posting in the correct place - Exhibition/Gallery.

Yes, you are absolutely right, i missed that ...
Maybe a mod can move it to correct place for me, pls?

If you feel discouraged due to the comments posted so far ..don't. Some people spend their day doing just that. Fortunately there are not many on this forum

I looked at your video and indeed it looks good. Have you tried it in the sun with the weight of full panels on it yet. I would like to see your code and oerhaps a schematic that is not on a video. Some of us don't have the download capacity for a lot of videos.

While on that do you know how to save a u tube video without jumping through a lot of loops joining stuff?
I looked for your email too but that was the same I suppose ..."join all this stuff then we might give it to you"
