Accelerator Pedal

I'm trying to find out how we can reuse the variable voltage output from an existing accelerator pedal to tell the motor controller to speed up, slow down, etc.

Is it as simple as wiring the existing drive-by-wire wire directly to the controller?

Sorry, I am new to this.

Many thanks.

Yes, you can use it but voltage will be not 0-5 voltage.
