    I want to control a car to go to position x and come back, or go to position y and come back.

    What will be the best way to tell the arduino controller what to do:

    1)I have one of these

    As far as i know the LCD module connects straight onto a mega 2560. I want to touch a block saying (goto X) it will then make 2pins high/low separately connecting to another arduino which then reads the input and controls the motors accordingly. Is this possible?

    2) Maybe using a barcode scanner and then reading the value?
    3) any other suggestions..?

    Im open for any ideas or suggestions as this is my first time using arduino.
