As a move towards sustainable development, we have established a spin-off company Labwork (with the start-up fund from PolyU) and commercialize the RemoteLab experience for existing setups. Please visit Labwork's website to learn more.

The design of the experiment platform is illustrated in the figure below. Registered users can securely login to a server hosted in PolyU, which grants access to the interfacing control program in a local console. This local console is responsible for manipulating various components of the experiment setup, data acquisition from sensors and the signal transmission to the user. Real-time video monitoring is also facilitated to visualize the experiment ‘in action’.Background as well as supporting materials will be also provided for students.

PolyU Remotelab Concept

  • Highly flexible for adaptation in different learning and teaching modes (class demonstrations, individual/ group assignments, systematic investigations), as deemed suitable by instructors.
  • Students and/or teachers can operate such setups in a way similar to running the experiment in school laboratories, at any time and from everywhere (as long as internet access is available).
  • Automated data acquisition provides a scaffold for students to take and analyze a large number of good quality data, gives students a chance to learn how to analyze many data points and draw a reasonable conclusion based on such analysis.
