Various control systems have been used to optimize robot performance, one of them is to utilize radio wave. The use of radio wave is very common because they are cheap and easy to deploy. Radio frequency use is also various; some use VHF, some others UHF for many purposes. One control system for one robot is definitely inefficient, therefore a continuous research on robot control system is required to control multi robots with different radio frequencies using one control system. This research

The frequency selection represents VHF and UHF frequency. This research is a prototype for multi robot control. Testing is done with several methods; system interface testing, Line of Sight robot control system, and robot control system in an obscured environment. System interface testing is done by using serial port communication to communicate computer with 8-bit microcontroller using ASCII. Line of Sight testing exerts maximum range of 4 meters using 40 MHz, and 10 meters using 315 MHz. Obscured environment testing exerts maximum range of 2.8 meters for 40 MHz and 13.4 meters for 315 MHz.
