Remote and Virtual Control Lab at DEI-FCTUC: Systems and Control Experiments for Engineering Courses

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The consideration of Information and Communication Technology tools are nowadays fundamental to support and complement the courses’ lectures, fundamentally in the Engineering area. This paper intends to describe the use of a remote and virtual control laboratory available at the Department of Informatics Engineering of the University of Coimbra (Portugal) to perform some experiments in the area of Systems and Control, common in several engineering courses. The conceptualization, design and implementation of a web platform for real and virtual experiments remotely controlled using the Internet will be presented. The relevance of a hybrid laboratory will also be discussed, essentially when used in a blearning context.
