Sphero RVR following DIY IR-LEDs

Hello everyone !

I plan to make a custom hardware that could be able to send IR signals to the RVR so it follows it.

Something like a stick you can direct the Sphero RVR with.

The Infrared Broadcasting/Following documentation Sensor · Sphero Public SDK suggests that two IR-LEDs are used to send two uint8 codes.

Would such a hardware be as simple as a code generator (Arduino/other) and 2 IR-LEDs?
If yes what IR-LEDs would fit the need for “3 meters” + and “< 1 meter” ranges?

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day,
