In this paper, design and fabrication of a solar-powered robotic vehicle is presented. The energy for the vehicle is supplied by two solar panels of 5 W each. For efficient energy management, a charging system is designed. The charging is independent of the vehicle movement. Two batteries are used so that one is charging, while other is discharging. A charge controller is also designed so as to provide direct power supply to the connected load in case both batteries fail. © Springer India 2015.
