Does anyone know if its possible to directly connect the EZ Robot board to a wheelchair controller? I have a complete Pride Mobility Jet 3 wheelchair (used to be Mom's). I also have a life size Lost in Space Robot (aka: B9 Robot, aka: 'The G-bot') that my Son and I built a few years ago. While we have had much fun with it over the years, I was never able to complete his drive section and/or make him semi autonomous and mobile. Currently it has some animation and I control it (essentially manually) from a tethered pc.
I am very excited with the EZ Robot kit and have the G-bot dismantled awaiting his upgrades!
Of course $$ are not unlimited so I am exploring all options. I originally was planning to remove the gear motors from the wheelchair and purchase a sabertooth 2x60 motor controller to connect to the EZR. Of course researching that, the 2x60 sabertooth is not cheap and it occurred to me the chair has a controller but I don't want joystick control I want it integrated with the EZR. I am not sure if what I wish to do is possible or -if it is- if its within my technical capabilities.
Any comments, help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
PS, As this is my first post other than my intro, please let me know if this type of question is outside the scope of this forum.
