In case, we have a limited number of laptops to connect the game controllers and master devices. This experiment shows that multiple game controllers can be connected to the same laptop for communication. The current communication system is limited by the number of ports. We can overcome this limitation by using a USB hub.

Limitation - My hypothesis is that if multiple game controllers are connected to the same laptop, it may result in increased latency as a new script needs to be run for each game controller. The serial write (system call) may slow down the communication. Hence, this should only be used as a backup.
