Date: 30 August 2016          RSVP: 29 August 2016
Location: UTAS

Intended Audience: Educators, Science Enthusiasts, General Community Members

The Smart Services and Systems Research Group in the School of Engineering and ICT has developed an internet-accessible 'Remote Lab' for IoT Internet of Things systems programming. This system provides local schools 7-12 with a large range of modular, configurable experiments as part of the Digital Technology Curriculum.

Schools can directly use this system to deliver online robotics programming curricula without the considerable fiscal and technical overheads of purchasing hardware and employing a software engineer/technician to configure modules and write supporting software and teaching materials.

Please join us for an exciting demonstration of the 'Remote Lab' and learn how it works and its significance for the education system. Presented by Associate Professor Byeong Ho Kang and the Smart Services and Systems Research Group.

This system is jointly supported by the School of Engineering and ICT and Sense-T, University of Tasmania.

This event is presented as part of Research Week 2016 and will be held in Hobart and video-conferenced to Launceston.

Full venue details:
  • Hobart - Lecture Theatre SocSci209, Social Sciences Building, Sandy Bay Campus, University of Tasmania
  • Launceston - A023 Video Conference Room, Newnham Campus, University of Tasmania
