Remote Experimentation with Thermo-Optical Plant via Mobile Application

Pavol Stefka, Katarina Zakova


The paper demonstrates remote control of thermo-optical plant via Android based mobile application. The user can run the experiment in an open or closed loop. The plant control is realized via predefined PID controller whose parameters can be changed. Another possibility is to use own customized controller whereby the control algorithm has to be defined using the syntax of SciLab environment that is running in background of the whole experiment.
