The Wii Remote, sometimes nicknamed "Wiimote", is the primary controller for Nintendo's Wii console. A main feature of the Wii Remote is its motion sensing capability, which allows the user to interact with and manipulate items on screen via movement and pointing through the use of accelerometer and optical sensor technology.


This is what we're going to do:

1- Wiimote is linked only by the bluetooth technology, so our first intention is to analyze some of existing software projects to understand how to get/send the information from/to its accelerometer and its infrared motion sensor and how this 2 technologies are correlated.

2- Write our own application to control the Wiimote and get from it its information.

3- Control a particular physical robot with the Wiimote we called "RoboWii".
