    Welcome to the PF.

    Please be much more complete in your question. The term "controller" can mean many different things. Do you mean a microcontroller (uC) board, or an industrial control panel, or what? Can you give some examples and post some links? What have you found in your searching so far?

    Sorry for the lag of information in my previous post. I'm currently building a spy robot which required a remote control which I'm planning to use a transmitter to transmit data to a raspberry pi. I juz wan to knw if I'm on the right track and is the diagram below a transmitter? How can i make it transmit data that i wan?

    Looks like a transmitter to me. Well, first thing to do is to make sure all the components are compatible :)

    What are you asking? You can make it transmit the data you want by programming the controller to present the data you want at the data terminal. But I'm sure that's not going to tell you anything you don't already know. You need to be more specific in your question.

    So, try to ask specific questions.

    Try googling for remote robot control
    For example
