An advanced interactive interface for Robotics e-learing

By Carlos A. Jara, Francisco A. Candelas-Herías and Fernando Torres

Abstract

Virtual and remote laboratories have improved learning and training in the academic community. They allow students to acquire methods, skills and experience related to real equipment in an intuitive and cost-effective way. The purpose of this paper is to present the development and the implementation of an e-learning environment in the field of Robotics. The main aim of this application is to allow students to simulate and to teleoperate a robot arm in an easy and user-friendly way, although it also includes many novel advanced features. The application has been developed using Easy Java Simulations (EJS), an open-source tool for people who do not need complex programming skills.This work was supported in part by the research project DPI2005-0622 and the FPI grant BES-2006-12856
