When you lose or break an original remote, you have to keep buying new remotes — none of which completely control the device in question.Last month, I showed you how to add infra-red (IR) object detection to your BoE-Bot. IR components are plentiful because remote controls generally use IR to send commands back to their parent device. So why not make the IR detector on your robot pick up commands from a remote control?
