all right so this is our 38 kilohertz IR receiver module and it works with our universal remote that you can see here and you can see it lighting up as we push different buttons and that's the same remote we took apart in our reverse engineering videos so we're going to plug this into our breadboard and then we're gonna bend it back and the reason we're bending it back is that it allows you to trigger it from more different locations in the room and now we're going to the the lead that is on the left hand side when you're looking at the bits e-bot is the one that we want to connect to our arduino digital pin out number 12 so we're running that straight back to our digital pin out and then we're going to connect the other two leads the center and the one on the right to our positive and our ground so we've got a ground pin there on our le on our Arduino on them the front side of our Arduino and we're just going to run that black wire which is our ground wire to that ground on our Arduino and right now we're just sort of sizing the wire and that goes to the center of our IR receiver module and then there's also a 5 volt out positive so we're going to connect that to our receiver module as well and we're connecting that to the leg on the right side of the receiver module in and again to the 5 volts out and now we're going to test our module we've already loaded some code and we're gonna push to push our forward button and you can see it's running our our motors there so that's working and we'll provide the code in our videos that talked about the Arduino
