I am working on a mobile robot project. I have tested the teleoperation by launching all nodes on the Pi, including the master, the keystroke detector, and finally the node that sends commands to the motors. I have also established a connection between the main computer I'm using and the PI. While I can run almost all nodes on the laptop, the node that sends commands to the motors requires the RPi.GPIO library, which cannot be run from my laptop. I wanted to know if it is possible to just launch that specific node on the Pi from the convenience of my laptop.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Yes you can remotely roslaunch processes. You should use the machine tag. http://wiki.ros.org/roslaunch/XML/machine

There's a tutorial with some tips here: http://wiki.ros.org/roslaunch/Tutorials/Roslaunch%20tips%20for%20larger%20projects
