Here we use a L293D motor driver IC which is used for the controlling the rotation of the two motor connected to robot. Pin no 2,7,10,15 of L293D motor driver IC is connected to the pin no 9,8,7,6 of arduino board. Output pin 3,6,11,14  of the L293D motor driver IC is connected with the motor as shown within the Circuit Diagram Image.

For the connection of RX and TX read this article How To Receive and Send Serial Data Using Arduino Board
NOTE:- Bluetooth Module should be removed while uploading the code from PC to Arduino board.

Code for PC Controlled Robot:
 If you are beginner to arduino then download Arduino IDE from here How To Install Arduino Software On Windows. We use 9600 baud rate for the transmission of the data from PC/Laptop to Robot.Click here to Download the source code for PC controlled robot.
We can control the robot using the following instruction
‘8’ = Forward
‘2’ = Backward
‘4’ = Move Left
‘6’ = Move Right
‘5’ = Stop
