Abstract

This idea relates to the control of the position of the cursor on a display. It is usually necessary to provide two alternative forms of control, one governing the speed and direction of the movement of the cursor and the other governing the actual position of the cursor. These two forms of control can be provided using a joystick capable of displacement in X and Y directions from a central or neutral position.
