Abstract: In this paper, advances in the implementation of a remote laboratory that allows students to perform automation experiments through Internet are presented. Nowadays a supervision and control web tool of an electropneumatic manipulator managed by a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) has been developed. In the paper, new characteristics that are being added to use this tool in control and automation courses at the Miguel Hernaandez University (Spain) are
explained.
