En översikt över VISIR:s öppna källkodsdistribution 2007 (Swedish)
This paper is intended for people who are interested in creating online laboratories. Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Sweden has started a project known as VISIR (Virtual Instrument Systems in Reality) together with National Instruments in USA and Axiom EduTech in Sweden to disseminate an online laboratory concept created at BTH using open source technologies in collaboration with other universities and organisations. The VISIR open source distribution 2007 includes software for two implemented examples, one laboratory for low frequency electronics and one for signal processing. The distribution is modular and many modules can be used for other online laboratories. The goal is an international standard, enabling teams worldwide to expand and jointly develop this powerful approach into distributed online laboratories. Each laboratory is a client/server application controlled by an administrative system. These three parts are mainly written in Adobe Flash, C++, and PHP respectively. However, the hardware control module of the equipment server is written in LabVIEW. This paper describes the organisation of the software.
