Create an Arduino Controlled Light-Following Flower Bot

In this Arduino-based project, you will create a “biomimetic,” or biology-inspired, flower that follows a light source. You have probably seen this behavior in your houseplants! Plants require sunlight to grow and thrive, and “heliotropic” or light-tracking flowers turn to face the sun throughout the day so they absorb as much light as possible. This process has inspired a lot of biomimetic technology. Some solar panel arrays use a sun tracking system so the panels always face the direct sunlight during the day!”
