Xylem Inc., released XyDial, an iPhone application that helps customers position their solar panels. XyDial enables users to locate, configure and adjust a solar panel in real-time. Taking advantage of the iPhone's GPS, digital compass, gyroscope and forward-facing camera, XyDial determines the most efficient placement for a solar panel based on geographic location, orientation, month, date, and time of day. An advanced shadow adjustment feature helps the user identify the possible points at which a solar panel will be shaded and reposition it to improve solar output.
