This bot implements the addition of ESP8266 for establishing a WiFi communication between the Arduino on the remote side and the bot side.

In this project, ESP8266 acts as a communication device between the two Arduinos used in the Remote and on the Bot itself.

The bot - side ESP8266 broadcasts a WiFi signal on which TCP communication protocol is turned on. The remote - side ESP8266 connects to that WiFi signal and sends serial data to the other as per the user input.

The custom made Arduino shield on the remote side takes input and transfers the corresponding data to ESP8266 to transfer the data to the bot, after which the bot - side ESP8266 sends data to the bot side Arduino to interpret that data and do the corresponding action.”
