Abstract

Lab@Home: Remote laboratory evolution in the Cloud Computing EraThe Evolution of Cloud Computing and decreases in costs of electronic components,becoming smaller and smaller devices, now makes possible the emergence of othermodels of exploitation of remote laboratories. Indeed, until now, most of RemoteLaboratories are to make available through computer networks and software andhardware interfaces, the equipment or the real instruments installed in remotelaboratories. Now, it is time to allow students to carry out laboratory work from home,but in this case, measuring instruments compact and relatively inexpensive are at theirhands, in their homes. The proposed environment will be based on the concept ofSoftware as Service to allow the student to use software tools from the Cloud to enablethe tasks in solo or collaborating with other partners. This article will show the variouscomponents of the environment of a Remote Laboratory in Electrical Engineering andconvincing results obtained following the implementation of this new concept which addsmore flexibility to the existing ones we investigate on so far.
