Complete newbie with this and trying to figure out if the ardupilot/rover using the pixhawk is the way to go on my project.
What I want is fairly simple so pixhawk might be overkill.
I'd like to control a retrofitted Jazzy scooter base via a Sabertooth driver and a RC module from a laptop, using either key strokes or a joystick. Think remote operation of the scooter base using a nearby laptop being remotely operated via Teamviewer and the internet by a user on the other side of the world literally.
The Sabertooth has the RC control built in but I will need something like a Xbee or (I am assuming) the pixhawk to generate the signals and feed the signals to the Sabertooth motor controller.
So the question is, is there a manual over ride or manual control feature on the ardupiolot/rover software/mission planner that can be used with arrow keys or some other assigned keyboard keys to operate this scooter base? Or am I using a laptop to drive a nail so to speak? : )
