Abstract


Many engineering students graduate with insufficient practical experience in many fields although their theoretical knowledge might be deep. One main reason is the lack of available labs. Unfortunately, other solutions such as virtual and remote labs presented by pure graphical visualization for assisting the students to develop their practical skills, cannot completely replace hand-on labs, because they lack reality and try to visualize instruments and experiments graphically. Our research is aimed at checking and proofing the appropriateness of augmented reality (AR) to be used in representing client user-interfaces in remote labs. Students can carry out an engineering experiment represented by real and virtual elements, components and equipment overlaid with virtual objects.

Keywords
