GPS stands for Global Positioning System and it is just a receiver that receives signal from different satielites and outputs serial data for your computer or microcontroller to use.

To control a robot remotely from a computer you want Bluetooth or Wireless Networking. You will have to research these on Google first.
Check out the uBotino robot controller!
