As of late, there has been a gigantic development of mobile phones with over several billions of users all across the globe. Cell phone has made a great impact with our society. It is hard to imagine lives without cell phones. In this project, we have designed an android application to control a robot. The accelerometer sensor which is inbuilt in phone is used for controlling the motion of robot depending on the gesture made by phone. Bluetooth technology is used to interface the device with android application. The technology can be widely used in future for controlling any machine which can work on x and y coordinates (e.g. robot, vehicles, drones) by simple use of mobile and Bluetooth module (GSM for long ranges).
