Yes, 8051 like many microcontrollers like PIC etc can be used to make robots.
8051 is popular because of ease of availability of the device with many versions
(i.e with many combinations of pheripherals and memory) and associated
literature.

Kiel Compiler can be used for cross compiling for 8051 if you want to write your code in C.

You can use any 8-bit controller for making robots. Some people prefer PIC and some AVR. And if your robot is very high end you can go for 16-bit or 32-bit controller. For small robotics application you can go for any 8-bit controller.

SDCC will be a nice option if you need a free C compiler
