integrating a vehicle speed sensor signal might have more than just monitoring energy per mile/speed uses.

some possibilities include
1. detecting wheel slip.
2. rev matching for faster clutchless shifting, plug in the ratios and have one small pushbutton finger operated switch on the shifter to select rpm for the next gear (based on vehicle speed) and one to select the previous. controller can send a pulse or a brake to quickly find the next rpm.
