    Hi everyone,
    I'm planning on developping a little application that uses a joystick to move a camera, my question is simple, do you know if it possible on a UDOO quad to read data from the USB port using the arduino part ?

    Thanks to all!!

    The Arduino part of a quad is an Arduino Due so you have to look there it it is possible. You also have to look if the correct USB port is available, see the the documentation. If it is only a joystick you want to read and move the camera you could also skip Arduino and do it completely on Linux.

    On the other hand a joystick is normally made of two analog outputs that you could directly connect to the arduino analog inputs.

    You can consider to read the USB joystick in Linux and send the commands to the Arduino. Or like @waltervl already suggested to it completely in Linux.
