“ DEVELOPMENT OF A FULLY ADAPTABLE KEYPAD PROTOTYPE FOR SOFTWARE AND VIDEO GAMES DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS”
During the period from September 2022 to September 2023, experimental activities were conducted as part of the project's implementation. Potential modules that could be incorporated into the development of the new computer program and video game controller prototype were studied, as well as the next steps in the experimental development activity were identified, taking into account the recommendations and preferences of device users, while working on the development of an IT solution. These processes occur concurrently to enable the adaptation of the prototype to the customer's needs to the greatest extent possible, as well as to process it in an automated online ordering platform, successfully blending order processing and customer requirements with the company's production processes.
Based on market research, a contract was concluded with the service provider SIA "Routed In". Active work is in progress on the development of the IT solution, (automated 3D prototype construction and online ordering platform) - an analysis of the implementation of the existing platform has been conducted, along with an examination of the existing technical solutions. Furthermore, the foundational base code of the platform has been established. The platform is undergoing testing concurrently with its development to identify and address any gaps in the platform.
During the previous reporting period, there was active communication with experts and organizations that focus on assisting individuals with special needs, for example, the Latvian Umbrella Body for Disability Organizations (SUSTENTO) and the Social Integration State Agency to explore the possibility of organizing a substantial public event in the future, aimed at addressing and informing potential customers. Due to various circumstances, the event has not been implemented up to this point, but following extended communication efforts, representatives from the Social Integration State Agency and from the potential target group are scheduled to visit Azeron. During this event, information about the project, the current opportunities offered by our company, and its products will be presented, as well as the future vision in this regard will be shared.
