During the past few years, there is a lot of discussion about remote labs in the fields of informatics and computer engineering. However for courses related to logic design, microprocessors, microcontrollers and computer architecture, usually simulation tools are used only. In this paper, the preparation of a remote microcontroller course will be presented, in which the students may control real hardware via a web interface, directly from their homes while watching the results in real time through web cameras, connected to each of the four laboratory systems. The heart of the lab is the famous Arduino board.
Our target while designing the system was simplicity both hardware-wise and software-wise without degradation of learning volume and quality. Combining these two aspects a Graphical user interface was designed that is both pleasant and functional to use. Ultra fast software has been used server-side keeping the real-time experience true to its definition and finaly a set of lab-exercises was created that is both educational and interesting, maximizing this way the educational gain per time spent.
