My Bluetooth Remote Control Robot kit also comes with a Keyes Infrared remote sensor and a command .

IR command

You’ll need to install the IR Remote library for this to work. You can get it from github – Arduino-IR. To install, just follow the instructions provided in the README file.

If you want, you can learn a bit more about the IR protocol in the Ken Shirriff’s blog (link below).

This sensor has three PINS, from left to right : GND (-), VCC (2nd PIN), SIGNAL (S).

Let’s connect this to the Arduino. The signal PIN connect to digital PIN 11 (If you choose another, please change it in the sketch below).

 

Here is the result, from pressing buttons on the remote:
