Conference Paper
The approach for the development of Remote Labs described in this paper is based on the use of prototyping and measurement systems from National Instruments (NI), myDAQ and ELVIS. Both can be interfaced with USB, which allows for a great number of experiments connected to a single PC. Basically, the ELVIS with its prototyping board is the perfect s...
Chapter
Deep neural networks are state of the art for many machine-learning problems. The architecture of deep neural networks is inspired by the hierarchical structure of the brain. Deep neural networks feature a hierarchical, layer-wise arrangement of nonlinear activation functions (neurons) fed by inputs scaled by linear weights (synapses). Deep Learnin...
Poster
This poster describes and shows an exercise in the field of transmission line theory with the VISIR virtual lab platform. It measures the behavior of a 100m long coaxial wire, including propagation velocity, characteristic impedance using termination resistors, and frequency inversion.
Conference Paper
This paper shows that it is possible to develop higher advanced experiments with the VISIR (Virtual Instruments Systems in Reality) platform if some modifications are made and operating conditions have defined that match the measurement equipments specifications. The paper describes these additions and modifications as well as the example exercise:...
Chapter
This work in progress describes the ongoing initiative at CUAS to use Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for educational purposes. First, it describes the relevance of Internet of Things technologies in education, next it focuses on different hardware platforms used by CUAS. The main part describes the implementation of one specific example deve...
Chapter
This paper gives an overview about the design, implementation, and practical use in Engineering Education of “CoCo—Cluster of Computers,” a massive parallel IoT-computing cluster developed by bachelor degree students. First, the development goal and its expected application is explained. Next, hardware and software design and implementation are des...
Chapter
Even though modern laboratory concepts like Online Labs and Pocket Labs are implemented in a number of engineering education programs, the available exercises are still limited regarding the use of standard com-ponents (in case of Pocket Labs) and standard experiments (Online Labs). The goal of the work described here is to increase the number of a...

Chapter
This paper shows, how Pocket Labs, being the latest trend in engineering education, can be used together with already established Remote or Online Labs. Not only technical aspects, but also didactical methods and student’s motivation have to be considered.
Conference Paper
This work in progress describes the ongoing initiative at CUAS to use Pocket labs in Master degree programs. First, it describes the relevance of Pocket labs in education, next it focuses on substantial differences between Pocket labs in Bachelor vs. Master programs. The main part describes three different case studies in Microcontrollers, Real-Tim...
Conference Paper
This paper shows the experience with the use of pocket labs at CUAS (Carinthia University of Applied Sciences). Two types of pocket labs were used: National Instruments' myDAQ and Raspberry Pi; the courses were Electronic Engineering and Circuit Design, and Image Processing. For each course, some exercises are described as example. After each cours...
Conference Paper
This paper describes the overall image-processing system, which has been developed for the use in education and at various industrial projects. The added value for the students is the tight link between computer-based education in image processing and the real-world relevance. Complex and changing quality control demands of safety critical componen...
Conference Paper
The Carinthia University of Applied Sciences consists of four study areas: Civil Engineering & Architecture, Engineering & IT, Management and Health Sciences & Social Work. They all are situated in different locations of the county and are at least 30 km apart. To bring the experiences of different research and education fields together and to bene...
Conference Paper
This paper describes the R&D Project FlexZell. FlexZell is an industrial automation showcase including hardware and software as well as mechanical components. The objective of the project is on the one hand the implementation of a flexible, fully automated production line with special emphasis on quality aspects, on the other hand the possibility o...
Article
This paper describes the structure and overall contents of a Digital Signal Processing (DSP) lecture using both, the traditional text based programming approach based on C and Assembler, and a modern Model-Based Design (MBD) approach using the Matlab and Simulink tool chain. Undergraduate students are guided to implement a simple signal processing...
Article
Full-text available
A low-cost sensor platform (MORES Sensor) was combined with a microcontroller to build up an embedded solution which e.g. allows for a small hand-held Color Estimation System for blind people. The color sensor used here measures the intensity response of a surface caused by radiation with a specific wavelength in the range of visible light. This ra...
Article
A group of five electronic engineering students decided to design and develop a challenging autonomous Rubik's Cube Solving Robot - RuCuS. The objective was to design a system which is able to automatically detect the scrambled state of a Rubik's Cube using image processing and analysis methods. The state information is used as an input for the com...

Article
Real-Time Scheduling Algorithms are an integral part of dependable real-time systems design and implementation. Schedulability tests, deadlock conditions, and priority inversion concepts need to be carried out and investigated using a given set of applications. An interactive simulation and test environment for real-time scheduling (I-SITER) has be...
Article
Distributed Embedded Real-Time Systems are becoming more important in the industrial sector. Applications in the field of automotive, aerospace and industrial control require a deep understanding of system design, implementation as well as validation and verification. These requirements need to be fulfilled during the education of future engineers....
Article
The Time Triggered Architecture (TTA) and its related communication protocol, TTP/C is an emerging communication principle for distributed fault-tolerant real-time systems. Typical applications are safety-critical digital control systems such as drive-by-wire and fly-by-wire. This paper highlights the hardware / software architecture and design of...

Project
The ETAT project aims to create exemplary Education & Training Centers in the field of engineering education at selected EEC universities that are able to support as education hubs in the region industry-related education and training for engineers and young specialists. The following objectives are to be achieved with it: - Modernization of higher education in Thailand based on the experience of European countries; - Increase the employment rate of university graduates and implement the concept of lifelong learning with the help of special training modules in the field of industrial automation; - Development of partnerships with enterprises; - Improve the quality and relevance of higher education inThailand in the field of industrial automation; - Establishment of 6 certified Education & Training Centers at partner universities, which will be equipped with 30 special training places (respectively 5 ETAT Smart Labs per Thai university) - Establishment of a platform for distance learning and cooperation between the partners for providing e-learing & Cloud-based learning courses and for exchange of didactical documents and information. Education & Training Centers will be provided with teaching materials and certificated courses for different target groups (students, employers, post-graduates) as well as with the Thai trainers trained by EU university partners during the ETAT project.
