An Environment for Remote Control

Paulo Almeida, Fernando Coito, Luís Palma

Abstract

This paper presents an environment for monitoring and control of remote systems. The aim of this work is the development of software for virtual laboratories, and e-learning. The architecture based on a server and multiple clients, runs on a LabView® platform. Remote clients can monitor and control remote process models or real systems linked to the server, via the TCP/IP protocol. The Environment for Remote Control (ERC system), under development, is appropriate for control education and allows the use of different type of controllers, such as PID, Fuzzy, and others, implemented in the Matlab® language.
