Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering

  1. 1. German Carro Fernandez* , Manuel Castro Gil, Francisco Mur Perez Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Spanish University for Distance Education (UNED) Madrid, Spain
  2. 2. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering • Introduction • Understanding of robot • System implementation • System utilities • Advantages of the system • Conclusions This contribution was solely written by students and/or doctoral candidates.
  3. 3. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org - The need of practice is an important problem in the formation of a student of engineering - Sometimes, distance is a handicap. The use of remote labs with a computer and the Internet access, allows the students to participate in the labs as if they were there - Interaction with virtual environments is not enough. A real remote lab with real robots and real tools is needed Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  4. 4.

  8. 8. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org Different environments  Environment of the student:  Terminal from which the student is connected to the system  Interact with the webcam through the website and monitor the movements of the robot by remote manipulation  Changes of these states are limited: move, turn, open and close gripper, etc. Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  9. 9. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org Different environments  Environment of the software:  Web-based support to send and receive data, process and display them in each terminal (client- server)  All this manages in a safe and user environment with data recording capability for each user session  A database allows teachers to assign authorizations, monitor system usage and data storage for each user session Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  10. 10. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org Different environments  Environment of the laboratory :  Communication with the robot: can be via cable (USB / COM) or wireless (Wi-Fi / Bluetooth)  Robot: robot arm, picking, anthropomorphic, mobile, air, submarine, etc., or mixed  Webcam: allows the user to see what is happening in laboratory on real time at every moment.

  12. 12. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org The system allows to obtain the benefits of classroom practice at a distance, but also offers other features  Education and Training: This system lets the students manage their time and activities to practice and evaluate them objectively  Bring university education everywhere  System is multiuser. It maximizes the use of the robot by several students Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  13. 13. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org  Reduces travel costs for the student and cost of laboratory use  Offers the students the option to organize their practices as they wish  Adaptability of the system for other disciplines Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  14. 14. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org The system allows to obtain the benefits of classroom practice at a distance, but also offers other features  Industrial:  Facilitating and encouraging teleworking reconciling work and family life  Integrating worker in a robotic environment even before worker has to start working on it  Interesting when firms want to help to student to jump into the labor market. Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  15. 15. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org The system allows to obtain the benefits of classroom practice at a distance, but also offers other features  Social:  Helping familiarize children, youth, adults and seniors with new technologies and robotics  Monitoring children and their progress from home without children have to leave home Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  16. 16. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org The system allows to obtain the benefits of classroom practice at a distance, but also offers other features  Military:  Environment as realistically as possible in educational/training mode use  Allows remote control of robotic units to operate in high risk rescue areas, exploration or extreme situations, without the operator at risk.

  18. 18. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org Time to evaluate some of the advantages  Comfort and safety  Students have freedom to adjust their training schedule  Laboratory is open 24 hours 7 days at week  Reusability  Teaching must be flexible and offer as many services as possible to the students with the low possible cost  It is easy to implement a new remote laboratory in a short time and at low cost, in the same place  Scalability  After examining the hardware and software to provide the initial support, it just has to raise it in a modular way to ensure the service proportionately in each case Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  19. 19. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org Time to evaluate some of the advantages  Modularity  System allows new modules to include complementary tools and uses  Each university department, each teacher can propose new practical modules. Slight modifications facilitate it  Availability  24 hours at day, 365 days at year  Available from anywhere in the world with an internet connection Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  20. 20. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org Time to evaluate some of the advantages  Adaptability  System can adapt to almost any type of laboratory and almost any type of student, even for disability people  A simple add-on module allows you to manage those requirements  Monitoring  System can be recorded to make a personal study of the users  Both, teachers and students, have a history of hits, accesses, actions and results Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering

  22. 22. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org One of the most important objectives of education, formation and training, is that they become universal  System set out in this paper it is possible remove barriers and make the distance in a irrelevant variable or even beneficial  System aims to develop the possibilities of scalability and reuse  The result is a clear integration of students with this new tool  System integrates the side of the student, the side of the teacher and the side of the university or academic Remote robotic laboratory as nexus between students and real engineering
  23. 23. German Carro Fernandez germancf@ieee.org One of the most important objectives of education, formation and training, is that they become universal  System is not an exclusive tool. It can complement the traditional system face to face.  Student gets experience reflected in the real practice in remote , but in real environments.  It is essential for their motivation and integration into the workplace, or labor market and to jump to real world.
