[Low cost imaging solar tracker]
This is a new generation miniaturized precision solar tracker developed at NASA GSFC in support of the Mini-LHR instrument. As an alternative to the CMIEL trackers this unit is dramatically smaller, more self contained, lighter and cheaper. Instead of using a quad photodiode with a field of view around 5 degrees, this uses an IR imaging sensor with onboard DSP commonly found in Wii remotes with a field of view of 35 degrees in both directions. Coupled with a Teensy 3.2 to run everything all it needs is 12v supplied and it will lock on and track the sun with .056 degree steps compared to the .1 degree steps of the CMIEL.
