4. List of main parts

An Arduino Uno,DC motor shafts,L293x motor driver,TSOP 1738 IR receiver,9V battery,Jumper wires( of-course)


5. And of-course the code for the arduino

// Written and debugged by Siddharth Kothari, monacrylic.blogspot.in
#include <IRremote.h>
int leftmotora=8;
int leftmotorb=9;
int rightmotora=10;
int rightmotorb=12;


int RECV_PIN = 11;

IRrecv irrecv(RECV_PIN);

decode_results results;

void setup(){
  irrecv.enableIRIn(); // start the receiver


  pinMode (11, INPUT); //pin 11 connects to the IR rec…
