A Flexible and Web Based Remote Laboratory for Mechatronics System Experiment Course
A method for setting up flexible and web based remote laboratory for mechatronics system experiment course is proposed. Unlike most current remote laboratories, in which the experiment procedures are always fixed, the new remote laboratory provides more flexibility to students in designing and testing programs and watching experiment results remotely via network. The proposed remote laboratory is implemented through windows remote desktop and web service technology, and also includes a course web site which is established for experiment selection and management. The whole new remote laboratory platform is easy to develop and maintain, and has been used during teaching practice of mechatronics system experiment course in University of Science and Technology Beijing, covering experiments of PLC-based stepper motor control and DAQ card based condition monitoring.
