Application

  • Joysticks are often used to control video games, and usually have one or more push-buttons whose state can also be read by the computer.
  • The joystick has been the principal flight control in the cockpit of many aircraft, particularly military fast jets.
  • Joysticks are also used for controlling machines such as cranes, trucks, underwater unmanned vehicles and zero turning radius lawn mowers.
  • Miniature finger-operated joysticks have been adopted as input devices for smaller electronic equipment such as mobile phones.
