What are the basic mechanisms behind thumb throttles? I wish to design and produce my own. Is it some kind of spring-loaded potentiometer?
Most of them use a hall effect sensor and moving magnets. You can use a potentiometer as well, but those tend to have limited life as the wiper wears out.
There are several variations on the magnet/hall sensor arrangement. I've seen both single and dual magnet setups.
Below is a two magnet type.

Better to start a new thread and have a mod move the posts to the new thread.
This is no place for technical discussion imho.
