Abstract

This paper discusses the implementation of a Web-based multi-user remote microcontroller laboratory designed for electric-electronic engineering education. The MicroLab has been developed to provide programming and monitoring microcontroller modules through the Internet for undergraduate students. Students can access the MicroLab individually and simultaneously. The MicroLab consists of a server with web cams and microcontroller modules which have 8051 core architecture, and are equipped with a CAN (Control Area Network) as its peripheral architecture.
