Post Re: simple remote controlled robot
Since this is a school project, none of us can really tell you much about what to do. You will have to provide the main idea and some sample code before we start giving our advice. However, I can give you a starter: figure out what you want your robot to do. It seems like you want it to kick a soccer ball. So, build a ball kicking device for your robot. Then figure out how you want your robot to receive commands and act upon them.

If you're having a specific problem with your code, we can help you there. Get your project doing some test runs and then I can help a little more:)

Is this going to be a full-sized soccer match (outdoors, approx. 100m-by-70m pitch), or on a scaled-down field?

It would also help to know what kind of hardware you're thinking of using. If it's a scaled-down field inside a classroom, VEX Robotics (Cortex or IQ) offers starter kits to build remote controlled robots that could work for this.

EDIT: A timely blog post:
