VR001 unusable on Honor 10, looking for a workaround



I have tried to use VR001 module but unfortunately I didn’t succeed to use it with my Honor View 10. Thus, as my phone has an “in-built” IR, I wanted to use an Androïd IR remote application. I checked that communication is OK betwwen samrtphne and VRSSM IR module, I have retrieved commands strings into the allbot documentation but an information I have not seen is the IR protocol used. I’m far to be an IR specialist (in fact I’m a newbie in this!) but I saw that different IR protocol exist like NEC1, NEC2…

Does somene know which protocol must be used? is it a velleman protocol and if yes how to retriiive ptotocol specification? Or do you know if someone succeeded to do what I’d like to do?

Thanks in advance for your help

Best regards


Hi Meziane,

We are sending regular UART data at 2400 baud via IR.

The protocol can be reverse engineered by the arduino firmware
but an command look like
<WF 1 200>\r\n
WF is Walk forward
1 is how many steps
200 is the speed
and put it between angle brackets

Or check the app

Hope this was usefull
