teleop_twist_web might be a package of interest.

It sends out a Twist message based on touch movements on the screen. Useful for single-thumb operating your robot from a mobile device.

You are probably better off sending the twist message yourself directly using something like robotwebtools

Please don’t post basically the same question twice, it will split up answers, and wastes time.

Getting a web app to send keypresses to a terminal window is not related to ros, if you want to do it that way stackoverflow would probably be a more appropriate place to get help
