Abstract:


    In this paper we present a new 3D photorealistic virtual laboratory for undergraduate instruction in microcontroller technology. The web/CD deliverable lab, developed using state-of-the-art interactive computer animation technology, operates and produces results equivalent to the physical laboratory. It is, to our knowledge, the most realistic and advanced computer-simulated laboratory developed so far for microcontroller instruction. The virtual lab solves many of the problems associated with traditional lab instruction by providing: (1) 24/7 access to lab equipment and experiments; (2) effective laboratory training at distance; (3) lab accessibility to students with motor and vision impairments.
