This paper explores developing and implementing a practical work remote control operational architecture using embedded systems. This architecture is particularly relevant to electronics university courses, offering innovative approaches to low-cost remote laboratories. Students through the university’s local network at their convenience, providing a more flexible learning approach compared to traditional fixed schedules, can access these virtual labs. This strategy addresses the challenges posed by the high number of enrollees in Moroccan Faculties, especially in open-access institutions.
The study presents a detailed examination of this prototype's hardware and software components, with the potential for application across various disciplines. The hardware element comprises an Arduino microcontroller, responsible for managing electronic experiments involving a single-phase rectifier, chosen as an illustrative example of remote-controlled manipulation.
To evaluate the efficacy of this educational system, it underwent testing by students in the field of electronics and industrial systems. The outcomes of this evaluation highlight the numerous advantages of this innovation.
