Hello, I am building a robot that will be controlled by an Arduino Uno & EZ-Robot  who follow a pre-programming traject into a GPS and will be equipped with motion detector to avoid object to run well to it's final destination.

I wonder if anyone would have any similar project to share with me  !!

Thank you for your help!

Michel, Canadian Robot

No idea.  None of the Joysticks have a round connector.  It's possible that they used different ends on the cable, but unlikely.  Look at http://www.pennyandgiles.com/brochures.php is pretty extensive.

J&G Joysticks are amazing and the interface goes from simple potentiometers to redundent Hall Effect to CAN Bus... So depending on what the board came out of interfacing there can be a hard call wihtout some docs.

Easy Enough

  1. Power Supply (5V)
  2. Left/Right Output 1
  3. 0V
  4. Fore/Aft Output 1
  5. Fore/Aft Output 2 (If Avail)
  6. Power Supply / 2 – (2.5V Output Ref.)
  7. Left Right Output 2 (If Avail)
  8. Not Connected

Pin Out

If you need to build a longer cable:
Cable:         1mm flat ribbon cable 28 awg

Ends:          Mouser #: 649-98414-G06-08LF
Receptical:  Mouser #: 649-89361-708LF

HI, thanks but my connector is a round one ?? Please can you give me more detail ?


What model is the P&G Joystick you are going to emulate?  Should be on a sticker ont he bottom of the joystick, the first set...

I dont have the joystick , the controller is a P&G P73842 ISS.1 




HI, I have also a INVACARE controller MKIV GB with a Joystic MKIV A do you know that one ?




Patrick posted on the Fundamentals of a GPS guided vehicle, which you may find helpful.

Thanks Pat, very appreciated !


Hi, Michel

I have a similar project in my boxes... I am actually trying to decode the CAN controller of the wheel chair.

did you have result in that aera?

Thanks .
