Abstract


The goal of this paper is to introduce open modular hardware and software system “iSES Remote Lab SDK” (iSES – internet School Experimental Studio) designed for easy creation of real remotely controlled laboratories (RCL) that are accessible from PC, tablets and mobile phones. Open modular system “iSES Remote Lab SDK” consists of approx. 20 freely distributable JavaScript objects in a commented source code. Widgets are highly configurable and provide many well documented options and allow to build a complex measurement and control interface with data and video transfer. Open modular system “iSES Remote Lab SDK” can communicate with different measurement platforms (ISES, Arduino are ready; CMA CoachLab, Vernier etc. are tested), and also common universal measurement devices with a COM or USB port, further universal rotation and linear motion stepper motors, etc.). We will introdukce our 18 online advanced remote labs. Any user may have an access to the RCL on PC and mobile devices (iPad, smart phone, etc.) as well. Even non-programmers can build up a simple RCL and publish it in 15 minutes on the Internet!  System “iSES Remote Lab SDK“ has obtained the GOLC Online Laboratory Award 2016 in the category Remote Controlled Lab [1].
