The project proposes a robotic vehicle whose movement is controlled through a TV remote. An IR receiver fitted on the robotic vehicle is used to sense the transmitted IR signals from TV remote. The data is then passed on to the robotic system to perform required actions.
The transmitter is the TV remote used to transmit IR rays. At the receiving end an IR receiver fitted on the robotic vehicle captures the signals. The commands received by the receiver are used to move the vehicle left right back and forward.
The data sent through IR remote is nothing but RC5 coded signal data. The IR receiver interfaced to microcontroller receives this data is fed to the microcontroller which reads the RC5 code in order to generate required output.
The microcontroller is connected to motors through a driver IC. So that the microcontroller, on receiving IR input instructs the driver IC to drive motors accordingly. The system can later be enhanced in order to drive the vehicle through DTMF of android app based technology to be controlled via a cell phone.
