I’m new here and try to figure out how to build my first E-MTB. Because there is no controller I really like, I started a project for my own controller based on a Nintendo Switch Joy-Con. I have never done anything like this before, but I have a plan of how I want it. Joy-Cons have built-in bluetooth, so I hope it can be paired with a bluetooth receiver.
There is a Joystick for acceleration and brake. R button is used as “dead man button”. With Buttons B and X I want to switch between modes (e.g. increasing/decreasing maximum speed). With Buttons Y and A I want to switch the lights on/off.
SR and SL button are optional. I think there will be additional mechanical brakes if the motor brakes are insufficient (and for a higher chance to use this thing legally on the road).
This will take a lot of time and I’m not sure if I can finish it in a reasonable time.
What do you think, is this possible to do?
Did anybody try something similar and can share experience?
