language = {english},
abstract = {A laboratory is the place where scienti fic investigations and experiments are conducted. It has to be equipped with up-to-date devices to allow researchers to perform experiments for testing new ideas. However, having access to such devices is somehow difficult, not only in terms of cost, but also in terms of the complexity of building and con figuring them appropriately. Therefore, a new trend in computer engineering (Virtual Laboratory) has evolved which uses the Internet to be able to use devices in remote places. Using this approach, this thesis investigates a way of controlling a speci c device using MATLAB/Simulink. The usage of MATLAB/Simulink arose from the existence of a pre-built Simulink model that can control the real device. In this thesis, a web interface is created to allow remote users to control the device over the Internet. The backend connection to MATLAB is also discussed in this thesis. This web interface can be used to evaluate the experiments performed over the device and automatically generate reports accordingly.},
