Remote controlled Robot?
« on: March 26, 2010, 05:16:11 PM »
Hi, I have to make a robot using a PICAXE microcontroller. The problem is that it needs to be remote controlled wirelessly.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can make a wireless PICAXE controller for a robot?

Use strings to control it. :-P

One very low cost approach is to use a TV remote and a $2-$3 IR receiver to decode the button commands.

You need to get an RC receiver and such (have you seen the tutorial for RC robots?). Then you can probably hook up the receiver to the microcontroller. I don't know how to do it, but you can probably find it on the internet.
