Data Compression for Remote Laboratories

Olawale Babatunde Akinwale, Lawrence Olakunle Kehinde


Remote laboratories on mobile phones have been around for a few years now. This has greatly improved accessibility of these remote labs to students who cannot afford computers but have mobile phones. When money is a factor however (as is often the case with those who can’t afford a computer), the cost of use of these remote laboratories should be minimized. This work addressed this issue of minimizing the cost of use of the remote lab by making use of data compression for data sent between the user and remote lab.
