However, these systems are often complex and expensive to install and maintain. The QBotix Tracking System (QTS) by Menlo Park, Calif.-based QBotix, however, is the first comprehensive and intelligent system to use robots to automate this task, reducing the amount of energy it takes to tilt the panels while optimizing energy production. more>
