Abstract

SyRoTek is an e-learning platform for mobile robotics, artificial inteligence, control and other related domains that provides access to mobile robots moving in the restricted area. The user is able not to only observe a gathered data using internet interface, but also control the robots in real-time. Unlike majority of existing e-learning robotic systems developed in the world in which the user can only tele-operate robots, behaviour of the robots in the SyRoTek system can be modified, as the system allows to run own algorithms developed by the user. The paper presents two interfaces providing access to the user: web pages and extension of IDE NetBeans. Furthermore, two courses based on SyRoTek taught at two universities are described and discussed.
