How Would I Get The UserInputs of a Player on a Vehicle Seat?

So what I’m trying to achieve is detecting a UserInput from a user that is seated at my cannon, and so far I’m a bit lost on how to achieve this. I just want to detect if the user for example presses the “F” Key to fire the cannon.

So to detect the User’s input, all I have to do is just bind the input to an action when they are seated?

Use seated event to detect when they sit down, probably then have a function to handle them firing the cannon and have it bound to the keycode of F

So this script that detects when they are seated will be in StarterPlayerScripts right?

Heres an example script (local script in startercharacter), pressing f while sitting down prints “pew”

local cas = game:GetService("ContextActionService")
local player = game.Players.LocalPlayer
local character = player.Character or player.CharacterAdded:Wait()
local humanoid = character:WaitForChild("Humanoid")

function fire(_,state)
	if state == Enum.UserInputState.Begin then
		print("pew")
	end
end

humanoid.Seated:Connect(function(active,seat)
	if active and seat then
		cas:BindAction("FireCannon",fire,false,Enum.KeyCode.F)
	else
		cas:UnbindAction("FireCannon")
	end
end)

Alright I got it thanks for the help. This is something I’ve been stuck on for a few days now :).
