Joystick Design: Multibody Modeling and Simulation

Estimated Time: 20 min

Course Level: Intermediate

Requirements: Some experience with System Modeler is recommended for the course.


In this video, a mechanical model of a joystick is developed. This is a 3D multibody model with custom subcomponents. The video focuses on studying and comparing the performances of different self-centering mechanisms for the joystick by simulating and visualizing the model.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram System Modeler
