Claim of US Patent No. 10,684,640

1. A joystick device, comprising:an operating rod assembly;
a first magnetic component, the first magnetic component being mounted to the operating rod assembly;
a first circuit board, comprising a first magnetic sensor, the first magnetic sensor facing the first magnetic component, the first magnetic component being capable of moving from an initial position relative to the first magnetic sensor along a first direction or a second direction when driven by the operating rod assembly, and the first direction being opposite to the second direction; and
a first reset assembly, the first reset assembly being connected to the operating rod assembly, and the first reset assembly being configured to reset the operating rod assembly along the second direction or the first direction, so that the first magnetic component is reset to the initial position;
wherein the first magnetic component is capable of linearly moving from the initial position relative to the first magnetic sensor along the first direction or the second direction when driven by the operating rod assembly; and
the joystick device comprises:
a second magnetic component, the second magnetic component being mounted to the operating rod assembly;
a second circuit board, comprising a second magnetic sensor, the second magnetic sensor facing the second magnetic component, and the second magnetic component being capable of rotating from an initial position relative to the second magnetic sensor along a third rotation direction or a fourth rotation direction when driven by the operating rod assembly; and
a second reset assembly, the second reset assembly being connected to the operating rod assembly, and the second reset assembly being configured to reset the operating rod assembly along the fourth rotation direction or the third rotation direction, so that the second magnetic component is reset to the initial position.
