In this project, we will use Arduino UNO to drive JoyStick Shield and imitate mouse/keyboard. JoyStick Shield has one 2-axis control stick, 7 button key. We will connect these 7 button output to Arduino D2 to D8 , connect 2-axis output to A0 and A1. See following connection table.
The JoyStick Shield in this project has nRF24L01 RF Port, Nokia 5110 LCD Port，Bluetooth and I2C inteface. There is a voltage switch to select 3.3V and 5V board voltage.
2) Parts and devices：
1 x Arduino UNO
1 x JoyStick Shield
3)Circuit Connection graph
Insert JoyStick Shield into Arduino UNO, make sure the direction is correct!
4) Download sample code from following link
Download Joystick-Shield.ino sketch and load it into Arduino.
Open Serial terminal in upright corner of Arduino IDE, try to push any button or move control stick, you will see Button “A” to “F” and X/Y axis direction information in the window.
