Computer controlled robot!

 
receives data from computer and drives accordingly

Hey everyone. If you know my first LMR robot thats the geobot you might know that am good only at electronics not in mechanics so please be gentle with the design of the bot. So this bot works like a simple radio controlled toy. the transmitter is connected to Arduino UNO which connects the transmitter circuit to the USB or serial port of the computer. The Processing app is made in such a way that when key '8' is pressed on the keyboard the app displays a image of a forward arrow and writes 'f' to the serial port. This is recognised by the arduino and transmits this data to the robot where the receiver decodes the data and runs the motor driver which controls the two motors! fairly simple design. This just the prototype of the main project. Like a mule.
