Abstract 

We show how to control the movement of a wheeled robot using on-board liquid marbles made of Belousov-Zhabotinsky solution coated by polyethylene powder. Two platinum-iridium electrodes were inserted in a marble and the electrical potential recorded was used to control the robot's motor. We stimulated the marble with a laser beam. It responded to the stimulation by pronounced change of the electrical potential output. The electrical output was detected by robot. The robot was changing its trajectory in response to the stimulation.
