REMLABNET – User Experience and Mixed Reality Continuum

Tomas Komenda, Franz Schauer

Abstract


Our recent research in remote laboratory management systems (REMLABNET - www.remlabnet.eu) deals with questions such as how to make the user experience stronger and how to help users understand complex phenomena behind remote experiments and the laws of physics governing the experiment. At our current stage of technological development, we have both sufficiently powerful hardware and software to create an impressive virtual user interface which could be a help to this mission. An extended mixed reality taxonomy for remote physical experiments was proposed to identify goals of the future REMLABNET research and development. The first part of this paper describes classes of taxonomy and reasons why they were set up in this way. The second part mentions the chosen method of our research and our current progress.

Keywords
