Direct control of velocity and heading

In APM Copter, there are commands that allow control of velocity and heading. set_target_position_local_ned is an example. Are there plans to make similar functionality available in Rover? We want to do visual navigation so we need control other than going to a waypoint.

pull-requests with functionality are welcome. :slight_smile:

I’m sure they are :wink: I may have a go at it but not before Summer. I was hoping that maybe someone was already working on it or that it was part of the master plan.

Hi guys,

Do you know if this is implemented yet ?

I’ve seen that Guided mode is now supposed to work in ardurover just as in arducopter… so can we send a " SET_POSITION_TARGET_LOCAL_NED " or " SET_POSITION_TARGET_GLOBAL_INT " to control the Rover with velocity and heading input from a companion computer ?
