Experiments are stopped from June 15 to February 10, 2019 (The reason is still ongoing construction work near the laboratory.).
Some experiments are running again (trial): NICoL, CEcIL, IRMA, PaVEL, VeLMA, ZaCHaRIAS a MARIE.


Developer area


This space is not the standard environment of a remote lab. The following website is for testing, developing, and publishing our remote experiment management methods. Of course, here we want to help people who are interested in similar issues, such as remote-controlled experiments, IoT, and so on.

Many people are looking for a cheap and simple solution to manage the real process over the Internet. This site is for them!


Experiment management with the K8055 board


Our first effort was to use the experimental USB board K8055 in the management of remote experiments. Many users have already tried to solve the management board K8055 directly from the website. We have solved this problem using our own control server K8055-MARIE. See the links below for a description of our solution, technical support, download program, demonstrations, tutorials, etc.

Experiment management with the Arduino + Ethernet Shield

arduino + ethernet shield

We are currently focusing on the ability to control remote experiments using the Arduino with Ethernet Shield. This solution would allow us to omit the control PC, so we can create simpler and less spatially (and financially) demanding experiments.

We have used this remote remote control method to modify these experiments:

As soon as we reach generally valid conclusion applicable for other developers, we will publish it here.

Experiment management with Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is currently a very progressive solution that combines the benefits of using a classic PC controller (convenient programming, use of operating system services, stability…) and a universal development module (direct pin control, low power consumption, speed…). Among other things, using this module, we promise the possibility of linking remote experiment control with its webcam management, which we are dealing with each other separately.

As soon as we reach generally valid conclusion applicable for other developers, we will publish it here.
