Remote Controlled DC Motor

Control your DC motor with PIC16F877A from remote control
In this project we are going to see how to control 12V DC motor from a remote control. This controller allows us to control the speed and direction of our motor.
Related Topics:
DC Motor Speed and Direction Controller 
Remote Controlled LED
As we have seen in the previous examples we can control the speed and direction of dc motor, the speed is controlled by a potentiometer which vary the duty cycle of the pwm signal. Also we have controlled an led brightness using remote control.
Now, we are going to mix the previous topics to make our remote controlled dc motor.
The remote used here in Philips RC5 remote control, the following picture shows this remote and the working keys:
RC5 protocol remote control
If the button indicated by ccw is pressed, the motor will rotate in ccw direction, and so on for the other buttons.
Remote controlled DC motor circuit:
The schematic diagram of the circuit is shown by the following picture:

The 1602 LCD display displays the direction rotation and speed level of our motor, also it dispalys Motor is OFF when the motor is at off state.
