IR sensor and Remote

First off Im very new to any of this. and I think this is the right part of the forum for a question of this nature.

I am just getting into any of this electronics stuff. I got a raspberry pi and and arduino uno for myself as a birthday present. eventually I plant to make some sort of robotic vehicle but for now im just trying to learn how all this works.

right now the only sort of input device I have I can connect to the arduino is a tactile button (other than connecting the RPi to it and using a python program with keyboard input to output to the arduino).

I was looking on ebay and found an IR Remote and sensor cheap from china, I was thinking about ordering this, but I havent been able to find any documentation on it.

IR Infrared Wireless Remote Control Kits for Arduino AVR PIC T7

if anyone can direct me to any information about how I would use this please let me know
also wondering what library one would use with it.

thanks for any help. Im really looking forward to learning more about all this.

That kit should work with the IRRemote library (GitHub - Arduino-IRremote/Arduino-IRremote: Infrared remote library for Arduino: send and receive infrared signals with multiple protocols).

Just get a quality Vishay IR receiver (TSOPxxx38) .

My advice is to avoid cheap IR receivers. Can work but can also cause lots of issues & wasted time.

You can use any TV remote to test with. The pinout for most IR receivers is V+,GND,S (Signal). You don't really need a shield.

The signal is normally inverted (HIGH=0, LOW=1)

Dont buy any components if there is no datasheet availalbe.
