Addressing software impact in the design of remote laboratories



Industrial Electronics, IEEE Transactions on , 2009 Vol. 56 ( 12 ), p. 4757-4767


Remote Laboratories or WebLabs constitute a first order didactic resource in engineering faculties. However, in many cases they lack a proper software design, both in the client and server side, which degrades their quality and academic usefulness. This work presents the main characteristics of a Remote Lab, analyses the software technologies to implement the client and server sides in a WebLab, and correlates these technologies with the characteristics to facilitate the selection of a technology to implement a WebLab. The results obtained suggest the adoption of a SOLA (Service-Oriented Lab Architecture)- based approach for the design of future Remote Labs so that client agnostic remote laboratories and remote laboratory composition are enabled. The experience with the real Remote Lab, WebLab-Deusto, is also presented.
