Dual signal on throttle

Hi,

There are just 2 ADC channels available for analog input. In an electric motorcycle they will be used for acceleration and regenerative braking. 
Did anyone thought about how to use a throttle that has two redundant signal? (example: Domino throttles: https://www.domino-group.com/oem/en/throttle-controls.html This is worth considering in vehicles where failure of one channel can have potentially serious impact on user's health... ) Is there any IO expander available that will work with VESC? The only way I can see is to use additional IC that would monitor both analog signals and communicate with VESC...
Waiting for your opinions and guidance :)
