Abstract

This study proposes an Internet-based mechatronics laboratory platform for distance learning in engineering education. The Internet-based laboratory platform enables students remote access to laboratory equipment. This platform established a user-friendly and efficient technology for providing interactive online laboratory experiments for distance students. This study describes the development and use of a novel Website to improve the learning of mechatronics concepts. Preliminary assessment of the laboratory platform was encouraging and demonstrated its effectiveness for helping students understand concepts and master basic technologies for developing Internet-based mechatronics monitoring and control systems. The main contributions of this study are as follows. (1) A distance teaming platform is developed and experimentally tested with mechatronics module. (2) Learning exercises are specifically targeted to the objective of the laboratory. (3) Mechanisms that further support the students are developed (4) The proposed system has an intuitive and convenient platform. (5) The technical aspects of the proposed platform are also presented.
