IR control using an Atari IR joystick, possible matched pair usage

This post applies to the MEGA BREAD project, ultimately destined to be a robotics station for my son.


  • Linking the IR series Atari joystick controller to the Arduino MEGA2560 (DONE)
  • Read the current command code sent from the controller (DONE)
  • Read the release code from the controller (DONE)
  • Set timings
  • Link second IR controller

Now my questions:

  • During the receiving stage, there will be irregularities.
  • Quickly get any type of average
  • OR, Require the signal be sent twice
