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

You're going to have a difficult time interfacing directly to the P&G controller. The easier way is to cut the ribbon cable connecting the joystick to the interface board and feed it the same signals as the joystick itself. You'll have to tap into the pot for speed control.

That's my plan for my yardbot project based on the Pride Jazzy Select power chair base. I'm replacing the joystick with the remote from a cheap toy truck. Since you replace the original controller you probably don't need this info but others reading might be interested.

Can't wait to see how your project turns out.



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 .



HI François, No unfortunately after much testing and many comments I finally decided to use a 2X25 Sabertooth and it works very well!

Now my project works very well and I am working on the GPS side

Good luck, thanks

I am working on a very similar project. I would love to hear how your project is coming along.

Thanks Pat, very appreciated !


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...

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