Releases of the Lab Owner and Cloud Services -Initial


This deliverable is a companion document to the initial releases of the Lab Owner and Cloud services (Smart Device and Smart Gateway) that have been delivered at M21. These first releases implement the revised version of the Smart Device and Smart Gateway specifications as defined in the revised version of D4.1 (M21).The deliverable describes the software components available on GitHub together with their documentation and provides all related links. Next to that, this deliverable provides some additional background information and explains to choices made. In this initial release of the lab-owner services dedicated to new remote labs, we consider 4 alternative Lab Server implementations. A dedicated Lab Server is considered as a plug solution combining hardware and software layers linking a physical lab to the Internet. These four solutions target implementation on either desktop or embedded computers. The former corresponds to typically lab-owner implementation in academic institutions and scientific organizations. The latter corresponds to an emerging scheme enabling large scale deployment of remote labs at low cost. Two software alternatives are proposed to expose the lab server to various clients following the Smart Device specifications (D4.1). The first alternative is based on LabVIEW and corresponds to the mainstream solution. The second one is based on JavaScript and enables implementation on compact embedded computers. Examples of physical labs plugged using the proposed solutions are provided as templates to enable new remote lab implementations by lab owners. As defined in D4.1, the Smart Device specification is meant for implementing new remote labs, while the Smart Gateway on the other hand as a cloud service is meant for integrating legacy labs shared through existing third parties remote lab management systems (RLMS) within the Go-Lab infrastructure. This deliverable discusses the implementation details of the Smart Gateway and its plug-in architecture. The initial release of the Smart Gateway offers five plugins to exploit legacy labs from the following RLMS: WebLab-Deusto, iLab, UNR-FCEIA, PhET, and ViSH. The final specifications and releases of the lab-owner and cloud services will be documented in the deliverables D4.5 and D4.7.
