Project Name:Controlling Servo Motor Using IR Remote Control

Aim of the project:  How to control a servo motor with remote control, this will give you a general concept on how to control remotely.


  • Arduino UNO
  • Servo motor
  • Remote control
  • IR receiver
  • Breadboard
  • Jumper wires

Circuit Diagram:


#include <IRremote.h>      //must copy IRremote library to arduino libraries
#include <Servo.h>
#define plus 0xA3C8EDDB   //clockwise rotation button
#define minus 0xF076C13B  //counter clockwise rotation button

int RECV_PIN = 3;       //IR receiver pin
Servo servo;
int val;                //rotation angle
bool cwRotation, ccwRotation;  //the states of rotation

IRrecv irrecv(RECV_PIN);

decode_results results;

void setup()
  irrecv.enableIRIn(); // Start the receiver
  servo.attach(9);     //servo pin

void loop() 
  if (irrecv.decode(&results)) {
    Serial.println(results.value, HEX);
    irrecv.resume(); // Receive the next value

    if (results.value == plus)
      cwRotation = !cwRotation;      //toggle the rotation value
      ccwRotation = false;         //no rotation in this direction

    if (results.value == minus)
      ccwRotation = !ccwRotation;   //toggle the rotation value
      cwRotation = false;            //no rotation in this direction
  if (cwRotation && (val != 175))  {
    val++;                         //for colockwise button
  if (ccwRotation && (val != 0))  {
    val--;                         //for counter colockwise button
  delay(50);          //General speed
