Nowadays, robotics technology has become very popular in all fields of human life. Many robots have been already used in different applications such as indoor service, military undertaking, entertainment, healthcare service, etc. On the other hand, controlling robot remotely plays an important role in many areas when people cannot reach easily. Therefore, the aim of this work is to allow users to perform remote control experiments on a mobile robot through Bluetooth, Internet and SMS. The commands could be entered manually, using voice command, or using QR code. To limit the cost of the proposed system, the inexpensive (compared to more professional robot platforms) LEGO Mindstorm robot is used.
