Abstract

In this work the development of a low-cost solar sensor capable of locating the position of the sun through photosensors is presented. In addition, the sensor is integrated with the instrumentation to provide the data for a solar position algorithm. As preliminary results, we present the methodology followed for the development of the sensor, as well as the theoretical characterization carried out through the Tonatiuh software.
