The project goal is to design and implement an 8051 based Infra Red remote control. This remote control will send its IR commands on a queue from someone’s spoken words. The IR codes, as well as the command words, will be learnable. It is desired that one command will trigger multiple output IR commands. These multiple commands are known as macros. As an example, the command “system on” would result in the TV, VCR, and audio amplifier all switching on. If time permits, an X-10 transmitter will be integrated into the system to allow X-10 protocol as well as IR commands to be part of the macros.
