Hi Guys,
i need some suggestions for a gsm controlled robot.
i will be using a simcom sim300 or any other modulues in my project.
for controlling a robot i am aware that following methods are available.

-- DTMF(Old fashion)
-- SMS (longer time needed. not real time)
-- GPRS(doesn't come within GSM i think)

Are there any other ways available to control robots other than the above mentioned ways ?

Thank you very much.

GPRS is basically 2G for GSM...so it should work for your modem. From all the options, that is the most reliable and easy to implement. DTMF requires extra hardware and unnecessary complexity....SMS..well like you said, it can be delayed
