Upgrading the self balancing skateboard by xenon john to work like z board? Answered

Hey Frnds! I saw this instructable. And i want to make an upgraded version of it.

I want to make it work like the zboard but without weight sensing. But i know very little about arduino programming. Can anyone plz help me. Is there a way to recognize when i shift my weight forward or backward? (Using the accelerometer i think). We can then fix a notched disk on the front portion of the board, beneath which there will be a potentiometer. When we will put our heel on the disk and rotate it, the board will turn accordingly. Can anyone please help me with this idea. I really wanna learn. Plz reply fast if u know anything. Thanks in advance.

The accelerometer needs to tilt. A 4 wheeled board won't be able to tilt forward or back to trigger it. You either need a pressure sensor on the board to engage the motor or have a wired switch in your hand to turn the motor on and off.

You already started a topic about this with little response, so why open another instead of upgrading the existing?
