This paper presents a robot which is controlled over a wireless network by using a laptop’s web browser and accessing a webpage. The live video feed of the IP-camera (installed on the robot) can be viewed on this website. Thus with such minimal requirements, the robot can be controlled irrespective of the position of the user. Another method to control this robot is by using an android application in which the mobile format of the above website will be viewed and there will be virtual buttons created in the app so as to control the movements. This robot can also be controlled by analysing hand gestures by using an accelerometer.
