Abstract:This thesis describes the continued development of a modular gaming handheld/controller for gamers with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The prior research specifically went into the design of the controller and creating an initial solution for the PlayStation 4 (PS4) console. However, this implementation only worked for a single game due to the use of a single hard-coded menu for switching between control function groups (CFGs), limiting the player from playing other games with their friends using the special controller. The goal is to develop a system that works with a multitude of games where the player can define their desired button scheme per game and personalize the CFGs per game using an SD card that can be configured on a computer. There are multiple variations of the final pipeline, but each variation has its consequences in terms of time to develop, functionality, costs, and the resulting volume. Based on the research it can be concluded that for the appropriate development of proprietary hardware, such as the PS4, requires the acquirement of the appropriate product specification (Product Spec) so that the engineer knows what to build using detailed key requirements from the documentation.
