—The objective of this research is to operate a radio-controlled car (RC car) via the Internet network, which is called “Tele RC Car or (TRCC)”. The research was conducted by taking user commands from a client computer machine, which is connected to a server computer via the Internet network. The server computer connects with a digital-to-radio signal converter. Finally, an RC car operated based on the radio wave commands, which is received from the client computer. Both client and server computers were installed at different room in the same building. The experiment was conducted on the RC car with nine basic commands and three pattern commands. The nine basic commands consist of: 1) stop, 2) forward, 3) reverse, 4) turn left, 5) turn right, 6) forward & turn left, 7) reverse & turn left, 8) forward & turn right, and 9) reverse & turn right. The three pattern commands consist of 1) the O-shape pattern, 2) the ∞-shape pattern and 3) to run & stop before hit an object. The experimental precisions are 100 percent for basic commands and 93 percent for pattern commands.
