Remote control of autonomous robots/vehicles has been an interesting research area with many ongoing developments being done. However, most implementation methods either require additional hardware or involve certain trained individuals to operate the system. This paper aims to present a convenient method to wirelessly remote control a car mounted with the BlackWidow 1.0 microcontroller using the iPhone, with software written on the iOS SDK platform. A Wi-Fi standard of 802.11b broadcast from the microcontroller was used for experimentation.
