Intro: Arduino - Multiple Servo Control With Joystick
In this tutorial, we will learn how to use multi-servo with Joystick. We will control 2 pcs servo motor with 1 Joystick.
You can implement your robotic arm projects with reference to this tutorial. Of course we will use external battery / power when doing this. In the next tutorial, I'll show you how to control multiple servos control with Android Application via Bluetooth.

Step 1: Hardware Required
- Arduino Board - Servo Motor x2
- Joystick Module
- Wires and Breadboard
Step 2: Connections
- The external battery VCC / GND connect to the breadboard.
- The Arduino GND connect to the breadboard's GND input
- The servo connections we use in this project are as follows;
* Orange Input - Signal Input
* Red Input - Power Input (VCC)
* Brown Input - Ground Input(GND)
- The Servo1 VCC and GND connect to the breadboard's VCC / GND inputs
- The Servo1 Signal connect to the Arduino Digital PWM 3
- The Servo2 VCC and GND connect to the breadboard's VCC / GND inputs
- The Servo2 Signal connect to the Arduino Digital PWM 5
- The joystick connections we use in this project are as follows;
* The Joystick GND connect to the Arduino GND
* The Joystick VCC connect to the Arduino VCC
* The Joystick 'X' (in some modules 'H') connect to the Arduino Analog 0
* The Joystick 'Y' (in some modules 'V') connect to the Arduino Analog 1
* The Joystick 'SW' (switch or button) not connected.
About the Joystick Module:
2 x 5K Potentiometers for reading the X and Y position
1 x Normally Open Momentary Switch
Simple 5 pin +5Vcc - GND - VRx - VRy - SW
Step 3: Code
I did not share the code because it is short and it varies according to the number of servo.
You can write code by watching the tutorial. This is a better way to learn.
I will continue to share long and complex codes.
