The NavCom app turns your phone into the brains of a robot that can operate either in telepresence or autonomous mode! You can use direct serial (on phones that have it), bluetooth, the audio jack or a standard USB cable to talk with the robot body.
This uses a Bluetooth backport to allow phones with Android 1.x to talk to Bluetooth-enabled chasses. Install the 2.x version on 2.x phones!
