Hello I am kindly asking if there is a module I can control a DC motor with Ir sensors to move forward or reverse

Can you be more specific in terms of how it controls it, and what triggers the IR sensor? But you would basically need a microcontroller that takes the input, like an Arduino. Then, the uC controls an H bridge which is connected to the PS and controls the motor. This is assuming it's a DC motor. Here is one that should work, and would also allow you to add a second motor. Or you can search H bridge and make sure it can handle at least 24V and however many amps. https://www.amazon.com/DROK-Control...1?keywords=h+bridge+24v&qid=1573150068&sr=8-1

If you are going to use an Arduino, here is a shield that piggybacks on many Arduino models and simplified done wiring aspects. It also supports up to 4 motors for less that 6USD.
