cJoy is a joystick control system consisting of a joystick controller unit (cJoy controller) and an operator terminal for mounting into a console - the cJoy operator terminal. The terminal consists of a display, buttons and a computer built into a small cabinet allowing it to be fitted into existing consoles or mounted in areas where space is limited. The controller unit and the operator terminal communicate via a single network connection. The system provides interfaces to the thrusters and necessary sensors.
