Abstract : Humanitarian challenges in developing nations such as low cost prosthesis for the physically challenged, have also led to substantial progress in robotics. In this paper, we implemented and deployed a low-cost remotely controlled robotic articulator, as an education tool for university students and teachers. This tool is freely available online and is being employed to generate robotic datasets for novel algorithms. Using a server-client methodology and a browser-based user interface, the online lab allows learners to access and perform basic kinematics experiments and study robotic articulation. These experiments were developed for allowing students to enhance laboratory skills in robotics and improve practical experience without concerns for equipment access restrictions or cost.
