Joystick Controlled Robot Arm Using an Arduino

This instructable is a hand-in for a school project that we made. The purpose of this project was to create a robot arm control using thumbsticks. We had to use an Arduino Uno for the control and in addition, we had to implement some sort of actuator or sensor in the setup. We modified a Logitech gamepad using the two thumbsticks. Two push buttons where available to use, but only one activates the magnet (on L3), and the button on R3 is unused. Our school had a robot arm, a Logitech gamepad controller, an electromagnet and two thumbsticks made available to us.”
