Depending on your robot, control via the Internet could be tricky because of the unknown signal delays which the Internet imposes.

I must be the only 13 year old kid that hates the pi and its associates, yes you can do loads with them, but for me they take away a level of control and thought. You might as well just use a pc and a usb cable to some board or other, yes not a popular vew but I prefer MCU's and bare pcb's waiting to be turned into life.
As for a web controlled robot, the world is your oyster, pick a mcu with a built in mac and phy or get an external one. Adding web capability to a project doesnt need a pi, there are even pics with all the goodies built in and a free stack.

It depends on what level you can program it. If you can write Linux drivers and programs to interface with other controllers the possibilities are endless.
Code examples for a DAQ system using http://www.comedi.org/
https://flic.kr/s/aHsjCwNwsM
https://github.com/nsaspook/daq_gert

It's a very complex device at the hardware level. To write code that can handle direct I/O like a micro-controller is not a simple task because the Linux OS abstraction gets in the way at the user level but there are lots of add-ons for I/O that use standard interfaces like the Gertboard.
