Using Servo to control vehicle speed

Hi, I’m fairly new and have only done a few hours of research into using ArduRover. Is it possible to control a vehicle speed using a servo that actuates a throttle which controls the speed? I have looked around and cannot find any examples thus far. Any help would be appreciated.

Sure, it’s similar to controlling an ESC used for brushed or brushless motors. Gasser Planes use throttle servo’s.

My mower does exactly that.

This is similar to the project I am doing. How do you set this up, like tell the controller it is a servo instead of a motor?

ArduPilot’s default throttle output is RC PWM. It is directly compatible with hobby servos. There is really nothing to configure in any special way.
