Udit,

When you say "mobile" do you mean smatphones, tablets, etc? Or just radio? If you mean mobile OS, like iOS or Android, you probably will need wifi or bluetooth communication. In these cases I would suggest you use Arduino with specific shields or modules for bluetooth or wi-fi.

Good luck!

thanks to replying...

can you tell me which Arduino board is good to build the simple robot because

i am new in this field of robotics...

Udit,

If it will be your first time with Arduino I suggest the UNO. It is straight forward, and compatible with most shields and kits on the market.

Arduino Uno Rev 3, or to save cost you could use Leonardo.  Leonardo has the RS-232 done in software so if you don't use this port for anything fast, and as long as your robot doesn't require a lot of real-time operations, you can use Leonardo.

hello everyone, i am 1 st year b_tech, student , i wana learn about arduino, please help me,, give me some basics in order to learn its working fast.

Hi, it's really easy to get started.

1) Download the Arduino IDE (it's on the internet)

2) Get a solderless breadboard, LED, resistor & jumper wires.  Hook it up (you can find instructions on the internet)

3) Go into the "examples" section of the Arduino code.

4) Download the code to the Arduino using the arrow on the Arduino IDE

5) If you did everything right, the LED will blink!

6) Keep Googling the examples and trying them out until you feel confident.

7) Now you are ready to do your own projects

Hope this helps, have fun!

Kamal,

Check out: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoStarterKit

This includes the UNO, a book, and numerous parts to experiment with. In the US it cost about $100. You'll want to google it for your location.

Have fun!

Udit,

You can design mobile controlled robot by using DTMF signal decoader. You can use arduino.
The DTMF decodes the signals in to binary codes which are transmitted over one phone to another phone.
