Abstract

A remote Internet of Things (IoT) laboratory has been developed for use in teaching and research of cyber physical systems. The laboratory is configured such that users interact via the web to control and collect data from connected devices. The concept and technology of the remote IoT lab is successfully demonstrated in two applications. First the laboratory is configured for UTChattSat, a ground model small-satellite system (CubeSat) designed to enhance K-12 learning in the space sciences. The system utilizes real-time communication and web-based user control to create a distributed multi-user interface. Second, the laboratory is configured for a distributed sensor network with a single-user interface. The interconnected, real time, and smart system with embedded sensors and processors is used to provide data for assessment of current building energy models. Finally, challenges posed by interconnected and reconfigurable systems and the implementable future works are discussed.
