PRODUCTS Developed in a partnership with the Technical University of Lisbon, the e-lab allows the creation of remote laboratories, either at the client’s or at Linkare’s facilities (as a service). It is compatible with any operating system and able to integrate with any hardware used to robotize and monitor the lab’s experiments. e-lab Accessing a real experiment via the Internet or a local network, the user can remotely control the parameters for that experiment and receive its data in real time. The user can share data with others, talk in a chat room and watch the experiment being performed via live video feed. The control and remote access to the experiments allows to safely perform experiments that may involve dangerous materials. e-lab allows the creation and sharing of scientific and pedagogical multimedia contents that are truly interactive at all levels of education. e-lab allows integrated access, in one unique application, to different experiments available in one or several laboratories located in universities, museums or science promotion centres.
