When we think about harnessing the sun’s energy through photovoltaic technology, we typically think of solar panels found on the roof of a house, or in arrays that cover a solar farm. They capture the sun’s light and convert that energy into electricity. In this project, we are going to create a solar car that will run with the help of the sun’s light. 

Radio-controlled cars, or RC cars for short, are miniature model cars that can be controlled from a distance using a specialized transmitter - a remote. In this project, we will build an RC car that has two controls, forward and reverse.
