Collaborative Engineering Instruction Using Integrated Network Technologies


To enhance the experiential learning aspects of engineering students and their access to scarce research equipment, a completely Web-accessible, 24 x 7 Machine Vision Laboratory was designed. Remote PCs required only Internet Explorer and NetMeeting to fully use two workstations equipped with spectrometry and machine-vision hardware and software, as well as controls for an X-Y translation stage used to position test samples. A detailed system design and integration with safety features will be described.
