Images Scientific Instruments Inc. PS2 PlayStation Servo Motor Controller Interface allows manual control of six hobby servo motors using the PlayStation PS2 (Wired or Wireless). (Hitec/Futaba) [Not Included].

PS-SMC-06 PlayStation Servomotor Controller

The servomotors are controlled using the two joysticks on the controller. X and Y direction of each joystick each controls a servomotor. This totals four servomotors. To control servomotors numbered 5 and 6, one presses and holds the left shoulder button, while using the right joystick.

Servomotor speed is proportional to the tilt of the joystick.

Rumble feature activates when servomotors reach the end of their rotation in both the clockwise (CW) and counter clockwise (CCW) rotations.

New Mobile platform mode.
In this mode Servomotor1 and Servomotor2 are configured as differential drive in a moving platform using Continuous Rotation Servomotors see illustration below. See manual (PDF 270K) for complete descriptions of modes available.
