Specifications of the Lab Owner and Cloud Services (initial) – M21 revision

Abstract : This deliverable elaborates on the Go-Lab vision for the integration of existing and new remote laboratories, with the Go-Lab infrastructure. For instance, remote labs could integrate with the Go-Lab booking system (see D4.2), the learning analytics services (see D4.2) or specific apps (e.g., a data viewer app could read from sensors and actuators of any remote lab). For new remote laboratories, this deliverable provides a client-server architecture, based on the Smart Device paradigm, with specifications that detail the required services, protocols and data formats. Next to that, additional services are suggested that can ease integration with the Go-Lab infrastructure or support required services. Furthermore, we provide guidelines for functionalities internal to the Smart Device. The Smart Device paradigm conceptualizes and embeds the lab-owner services. On the other hand, for already existing labs, Go-Lab proposes the Smart Gateway paradigm, which aims to make legacy labs compatible with the Smart Device paradigm. Through this compatibility, such legacy labs can be integrated in the Go-Lab infrastructure. Due to the wide technical variety of legacy remote labs, we provide different levels of compatibility through the Smart Gateway. The Smart Gateway paradigm conceptualizes and embeds the cloud services. This deliverable is a revised version of the D4.1 deliverable submitted in M12 and contains improved, extended and more detailed specifications. The ‘partner’ deliverable D4.3 provides implementation examples and documentation of the software packages to develop remote labs using the Smart Device and Smart Gateway paradigms. An update of the specifications presented in this deliverable will be provided in D4.5 (M30).
