Abstract

Remote laboratories are essential for many distance learning institutions in the area of engineering. There are useful experimental sets proposed by researchers in different scientific areas. The structure of remote laboratories is still under development. This paper presents an electronic laboratory controlled by a server operated with LabVIEW software. Controller area network (CAN) behind the server computer provides multiple experimental sets running simultaneously. This architecture allows controlling multiple modules over a network using only one server computer. 

 

Key words: Remote laboratory, engineering education, controller area network.
