At the beginning of this article authors show limitations of currently used solutions in the field of reliable and safe working machines mechanical arms steering systems. There is also presented a conception of six-axis joystick which could be used to test new solutions in mentioned application. Presentation show main mechanical and measuring sub assemblies. Deficiencies and constraints of proposed construction were also discussed. Future works and plans were described at the end of article.
