Considering that this answer is only based on reading your question and not based on any other knowledge I have as to what you are trying to do, typically inputs are given to ECUs by means of different types of sensors. These sensors will provide inputs in the form of a voltage to the ECU. The ECU then sends outputs to other components based on the inputs from the sensors.
