This section presents a list of links to the web pages of the systems available for
the remote experimentation.
Some of them
are only virtual systems, and the user can just make virtual experiments.
For all the other systems it is generally possible to make either
virtual or real experiments.
Both the virtual
and the real experiments need the user downloads a Java Applet.
A virtual experiment
goes with an animated three-dimentional scene realized in OpenGL.
To view the virtual animation the user should have installed a recent
version of the Java Virtual Machine, and the OpenGL libraries for
Java (click here
for more details on the requirements).
With a virtual experiment, the user may simulate the effect of a
specific control law applied to the system. It is possible to choose
the experiment, and for every experiment it is generally possible
to choose the value of a set of control parameters. During the simulation,
the Java Applet plots some state variables to allow the user to
understand the system evolution.
The real experiment
allows to observe what actually happens to the physical system under
the action of some control laws. The user can monitor the proceeding
of the experiment by the images of a webcam. At the end of the experiment,
the user can download both a digital video (in MPEG format) and
a set of files (availables in the formats .mat, .txt and .zip) concerning
some variables monitored during the experiment (like the link velocities,
the motor current, etc.).
