Screen for the robot

My robot contains a Raspberry Pi model A. Right now I always ssh into it in order to start the robot application and I need to remotely ssh all commands.
I intend to create a simple userinterface in the form of a LCD and a few buttons to make it easier to turn on and off and perhaps reboot and reload the applications.

I have a 5110 that I have used together with arduino boards before.
I found this tutorial:

This is built using wiringPi

The tutorial did not work fully, apparently I need wiringpi2, since I get the message "ImportError: No module named wiringpi2"
"sudo pip install wiringpi2"

Worked the second time...
