I am controlling my B9 robot (i.e. The G-Bot) using a Sabertooth 2x25 with EZB v3. Is there a way to set the Sabertooth or EZB so my robot's motion is gradual (maybe exponential vs linear)? The G-Bot will have a rather high center of gravity when fully assembled and the way the lower half is buzzing around in my garage it would've been on its side by now. As it is I think I could have driven it right through the garage door.
I could put a blade on it and use it for plowing snow in a few weeks
Thanks in advance!

Can anyone point to a tutorial that may give suggestions (script, other controls, or a combination) that will allow me to achieve this?
Also, the axis of the joystick control is 90 degrees off what I want. Is there an easy what to change that?
What about custom assigning other buttons for other functions? I've gotten the soil sampler to deploy with a joystick button using Rich's E switch and I've experimented with using some other simple script to try and achieve control of the torso rotation control motor using joystick 2 (using a diverse electronincs H bridge) but, again, I need much better control (variable speed and direction ramping, etc). When I tried to add another H bridge control to control the torso rotation with joystick two, ARC won't allow more that ONE Movement Panel at a time? What's up with that?
Is there anything like a primer on how this all works? (specifically: what is scripting? Is it a language? , how does serial motor control work?, advantages of using PWM vs serial with available premade controls?)
I know I have much to learn to get the G-Bot where I want him by Halloween and I'm not even really sure where to start.
Any help ans suggestion much appreciated as usual.
