Sun Sensor is my bachelor's thesis at the Czech Technical University.
The goal is to design algorithms for determining the position and orientation based on the observation path of the Sun across the sky. It also includes the design of an experimental solar sensor. At fig. 1 is simplified principle of this problem.
