For a project that I'm currently working on I'm trying to get a robot move on 2 wheels... each wheel are attached separately to two different motors which I'm controlling through Arduino. So far this is what I got: Through serial communication I can send the commands to my Arduino board, I'm using a [KEY] object on Max to do so. With the arrows of the keyboard I can make the robot go North-East-South-West (with the four arrow keys).
Now, I want to get Northeast-Southeast-Northwest-Southwest as well... I can't figure it out how to make it with the Key object to detect when two arrows keys are pressed at the same time. I don't want to stop the robot moving for changing directions but to be able to change it as it's moving...
Some clues over there how to make this work??
(I hope the idea is clear!)
