In the last couple of years we founded more laboratories. One new CVTC Laboratory the “Radu Grigorovici” Thin Films and Nanosystems Laboratory, much like part of the Creativity Laboratory. Our goal was to try to implement all the new devices, sensors, systems and concepts in order to be able to develop new and valuable Remote laboratory technologies based on the real physical instruments (devices) and also to implement creatively new Virtual Instruments and create flexible Remote Engineering (RE) Technologies.The general idea was to develop a flexible system which offers to the teachers and generally speaking to the university and research labs (like “Radu Grigorovici” laboratory) one easy to use and reconfigurable system.
Cypress Semiconductors delivers high-performance, mixed-signal, programmable solutions that provide customers with rapid time-to-market and exceptional system value. Cypress offerings include the flagship PSoC 1, PSoC 3, PSoC 4 and PSoC 5LP programmable system-on-chip families. Cypress is the world leader in capacitive user interface solutions including CapSense touch sensing, TrueTouch touchscreens, and trackpad solutions for notebook PCs and peripherals.
National Instruments offers hardware, software, and courseware solutions that prepare today’s engineering students to be the innovators of tomorrow. From introductory classes to advanced system design, easily integrate NI tools into existing curriculum or re-envision your teaching lab to add hands-on learning and industry relevance.
Every day, researchers at academic institutions around the world use NI platforms to solve grand challenges in numerous application areas.
Based on the actual developments and fast growing market of remote controlled devices and systems, mobile communication technologies and computer systems, we believe that this century will be a “remote one” and so, Remote Engineering will be one of the future trends in education and industrial developments.
Our experience in training of engineers had noticed that, in any situation, there is necessary an interface between academic world and industrial world. There are a lot of problems which didn’t touch during of training (due to limited time, due to conservative character of training system, etc.) but are needed in career, or other problems which appeared when the companies wanted to improve their technical capacity, and it need lifelong learning for employees.
In short these were the fundamental reasons which determined our team to start an interface named CVTC Centre of Valorization and Transfer of Competence in University „Transilvania” of Brasov - with his well know Creativity Laboratory based on the National Instruments NI ELVIS technology.
Top universities from around the world are using NI LabVIEW and NIELVIS to enhance their engineering curriculum. Courses in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, and biomedical engineering all use the powerful combination of LabVIEW and NI ELVIS to teach topics including instrumentation, circuits, measurements, controls, and signal processing.
