Project Details


The aim of the project is the definition and development of a telematics based European infrastructure and organisation for ICT curriculum providing a range of co-authoring, co-learning, simulation- and laboratory practice-based learning facilities. RIPLECS project aims at adapting DIPSEIL system to enable real-world experiments remotely in an e-learning context of "Information and Communication Systems (ICS)" curriculum: Identification of user needs in practical ICT education and translation into functional specifications of Remote-labs access in Internet-based Performance-centred Learning Environment for Curriculum Support (RIPLECS). Development and validation of prototype of telematics based ICT educational service RIPLECS. Experimental study and analysis of new instrument 'Remoteness' in IPLECS environment through practical tasks performance. The students will be able to interact with the remote experiment, change parameters and in some cases modify and design experiments. RIPLECS platform enables distribution of resources, in terms of lab-experiments, by utilizing multiple Web servers in a single network topology. Instructors from different European countries can take the advantages of employing a running lab-experiment and present in their native language and personal educational point of view.Each supervisor will have the opportunity to review users' performance by his own criteria, according to the assessments rules for each experiment, which are defined in the RIPLECS application server. With the integration of telecommunication technologies and computer science with virtual instrumentation, real, remote laboratories can be developed and accessed through Internet in real time, ensuring a richer collaborative experience for the student while avoiding some of the growing limitations of traditional laboratories, such as the lack of enough work area, expensive instrumentation, lack of personnel, time assigned to a laboratory, and their availability in non-working office hours. Educational Objectives Wireless Sensor Nodes and Networks * Generic structure of sensor nodes * Interaction of the units * WSN communication Energy Considerations for WSNs * Power consumption of sensor nodes * Network considerations * Energy harvesting * Low power techniques WSN Application Scenario: Wireless alarm system
