AbstractAccuracy and reliability studies for remote laboratories can be utilized in a wide range ofcurricula in both engineering and engineering technology programs. In a typicalundergraduate class, learning of a theoretical method is often reinforced by analysis andpractical experiments. Using a remote measurement technology, theoretical learning canbe complemented by online experimental verifications. The paper addresses developmentof a remote laboratory setup that allows monitoring the resulting reliability and accuracythrough the web. The setup incorporates modern sensors, data acquisitioninstrumentation, and programs to monitor and control such an application. These toolscan be beneficial for laboratory practices in undergraduate level quality control orinstrumentation classes. The entire process shows results based on the data that iscollected in real-time through the Internet. The system demonstrates the effectiveness ofan online calibration tool to test for position accuracy and repeatability of a roboticdevice. The results would provide students with a “hands-on” approach to learning,allowing them to thoroughly understand the measurement research process.
