The aim of this master’s thesis is the design and implementation of a dedicated software system, for planning and implementation of occupational therapy in- tervention and research studies, in a driving simulator environment. In the first part, the concept based on user requirements is presented. It consists of architectural patterns and guidelines with the main focus on utility and appli- cation security. The result of this part is the design of a web application which supports integration in a clinical as well as a research environment. The second part presents the reference implementation of the previously intro- duced concept. It was developed under a case study in a research facility which hosts a driving simulator. A close cooperation and the influence the researcher’s experience led into a product which provides advanced usability for the target users. In conclusion, the thesis validated the concept indirectly under a testing phase of the reference implementation. It provides the base for a follow-up project to refine the software product and extend the concept to different fields of applica- tion.
