This project is designed to control a robotic vehicle using a standard TV remote. An IR sensor is interfaced to the control unit of the robot for sensing IR signals transmitted by the remote. This data is conveyed to the control unit which moves the robot as desired. An 8051 series microcontroller is used in this project as the control device.

The transmitting end uses the TV remote through which IR commands are transmitted. At the receiver end, these commands are used for controlling the robot in all directions, such as forward, backward, left and right. At the receiving end, the movement is achieved by two motors that are interfaced to the microcontroller. An RC5-based coded data sent from the TV remote is received by the IR receiver interfaced to the microcontroller.

The microcontroller program refers to the RC5 code to generate respective output based on the input data to operate motors through a motor-driver IC, as motors are interfaced to the control unit through the motor-driver IC.

Furthermore, this project can be enhanced by DTMF technology. With this technology, one can control robotic vehicle using one's cell phone. This technology has an advantage over long communication range as compared to the line of sight communication in the IR technology.
