Pilot Joystick All

Provide joystick interface in All Outputs configuration on Windows platform

Library

Animation/Animation Support Utilities

Description

The Pilot Joystick All block provides a pilot joystick interface for a Windows® platform. Analog is mapped to the joystick X, Y, Z, R, U, and V channels. Buttons and POV are mapped to up to 32 joystick button states and the joystick point-of-view hat.

You can also configure the block to output four axes by setting the Output configuration parameter to FourAxis.

This block does not produce deployable code.

Dialog Box

Joystick ID

Specify the joystick ID: Joystick 1, Joystick 2, or None.

Output configuration

Specify the output configuration: FourAxis (see Pilot Joystick) or AllOutputs. AllOutputs is the default.

Sample time

Specify the sample time (-1 for inherited).

V

[ 0, 1]

[min, max]

V channel value

2

buttons

uint32 flagword containing up to 32 button states. Bit 0 is button 1, etc.

3

POV

Point-of-view hat value in degrees as a double. Zero degrees is straight ahead, 90 is to the left, etc.

Output values are [-1,1] for centered values, [0,1] for noncentered values, and uint32 for the buttons in All Outputs mode. Output sense is positive for right-hand rule rotations on centered values (roll, pitch, and yaw).

Assumptions and Limitations

If the joystick does not support an R (rudder or "twist") channel, yaw output is set to zero. Outputs are of type double except for the buttons output in AllOutputs mode, which is a uint32 flagword of bits. On non-Windows platforms, this block currently outputs zeros.

    Note   Pitch value has the opposite sense as that delivered by FlightGear's joystick interface.
