This paper presents Bluetooth communication learning based on iPhone for robot control. In this scheme, two axes of the acceleration sensor attached inside iPhone are used for remote control of a mobile robot. In particular, two educational issues in the paper are treated. First, the use of iPhone controller makes the user know how the mobile robot changes direction. The robot direction is associated with the y-axis of iPhone so an user knows what is y-axis of an acceleration sensor in iPhone. Second, the user learns how to build a communication packet for controlling a robot effectively. The experimental results show how Bluetooth communication can be effectively used for controlling a mobile robot remotely.
