Author Affiliations +
This paper presents results from an ongoing collaboration between Wilkes University and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in using the Internet for undergraduate education in robotics. An interface has been developed which allows computer science students at UW-La Crosse to control a robotic manipulator on the Wilkes University campus using images transmitted from Wilkes. The focus of this paper is the interface which monitors the image transmission and the control which the student user has over that transmission. An option in the interface allows the user to crop the image to a desired size in order to focus on a specific feature. Results of experiments performed by the joint undergraduate research groups at both institutions in using this component, as well as the associated educational outcomes, are presented here.
