Self-reliant parasol [Arduino Uno R3]

Samuel Forestier — 18 May 2013
This project has to optimize the brightness rate of a place.
A photo-resistor is connected on an Arduino which decides when the parasol has to go up, or go down.
This action depends on the wind and the luminosity: when wind rate is LOW and brightness too HIGH, the motor is launched and the status of the parasol change.
There is two limit switches which send a HIGH state when pressed.
They stop the progression of the parasol.

Thanks to Lucas and PATT.
