Interactive virtual laboratory for distance education in nuclear engineering

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A real time, distance lab module is being developed and implemented in the Department of Nuclear, Plasma and Radiological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This internet based system allows remote personnel to watch the experiments, acquire data, and interact with on-site personnel. The e-lab broadcasts not only the live scenes of laboratory and experiments, but also the real time data and plots being measured and displayed in graphical and other formats. Moreover, use of LabVIEW's remote front panel feature allows communications between the local lab and remote client so that, if permitted, remote client can control part or all of the experiment in real-time.
