In this interactive demonstration we show the usage of a remote reconfigurable logic laboratory for digital design students, presented in a full paper submitted to the conference. A very simple web based approach is used to enable the remote access to a FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) development and educational board. The board switches and keys are virtualised with an online web form, and a webcam is used to provide feedback to the user.

Author Biography

Jorge Lobo, ISR - University of Coimbra

Jorge Lobo (Jorge Nuno de Almeida e Sousa Almada Lobo) was born on the 23rd of September 1971, in Cambridge, UK. In 1995 he completed his five year course in electrical engineering at Coimbra University. In April 2002, he received the MSc degree with the thesis ?Inertial Sensor Data Integration in Computer Vision Systems.â�?¬ In June 2007, he received the PhD degree with the thesis ?Integration of Vision and Inertial Sensing.â�?¬ He was a junior teacher in the Computer Science Department of the Coimbra Polytechnic School, and later joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the Faculty of Science and Technology at the University of Coimbra, where he currently works as Assistant Professor. He is responsible for courses on Digital Design, Microprocessors and Computer Architecture. His current research is carried out at the Institute of Systems and Robotics, University of Coimbra, working in the field of computer vision, sensor fusion, and mobile robotics. Current research interests focus on inertial sensor data integration in computer vision systems, Bayesian models for multimodal perception of 3D structure and motion, and real-time performance using GPUs and reconfigurable hardware. He has participated in several national and European projects, more recently in BACS - Bayesian Approach to Cognitive Systems (FP6-IST-027140) and HANDLE - Developmental pathway towards autonomy and dexterity in robot in-hand manipulation (FP7-2008­ 231640).
