I have some designed that use some linear actuators. Basically, a double triangle truss and actuators to change the shape of the triangle. I'd have to draw it to demo it better.
The idea is that from a single actuator, when "parked" halfway through it's travel stroke, should allow you to tip the panel to the left or right.
With creative use of software controls on the linear actuators, there is limited ability to pan and tilt the unit, since the actuators I've specified use heim joints.
The reality is I'll probably build some channel aluminum brackets that "someday" I can install actuators, but for now everything is al manuel.
I like the idea of 8-10 panels on the roof of the bus that can all independently track the sun.

I have been researching adjustable mounts for quite some time, just thought someone might have done some already, and might have some pointers?
