I'd like to test out my project by using keyboard input on my PC. I've found lots of things to use a keyboard directly on an arduino, and lots of other projects, but that's more work than a few lines of code, so if I have to do that, I'll just keep going and use the PS2 controller. But that's significantly more work before I start testing, so I'd rather not do that. I find testing frequently makes for an easier project.
I've got an Arduino ADK on top of a Roomba 4 series. I've tested the communication with code fromhttp://hackingroomba.com/code/micro/
using Arduino 0023 (simpler than fixing the code) and would like to use the keyboard on my PC to make the Roomba move backwards and forwards a little bit on my desk. Once I get that done, I'd like to move to getting the PS2 interface to wok, and then I'll use the PS2 to remote control the Roomba.
