Stimulus Generating Device Connection and Stimulus Control

The stimulus control module receives commands from the user interaction and flow control module, which it has to implement. Therefore, this software module has to build up a connection to the stimulus generating device. Moreover, it has to implement a way of message coding into the stimulus using a coding scheme. Lastly, this module has to provide a facility to start and stop the stimulus, and to change stimulus parameters (e.g. the stimulus’ intensity).
