Remote Access to Training Rigs

Practicals make up a large proportion of the student curriculum at IT Sligo. The KITE remote training rigs are accessible 24/7 via the internet for online students.  Students can remotely control the PC which operates the rig and view the results with 1 or more web cameras.

Alternatively here are 2 demo network cameras which are independent of the connection to the rig PC:
Demo Camera 1: If you are inside IT Sligo click here.   If you are outside IT Sligo click here.
Demo Camera 2: If you are inside IT Sligo click here.   If you are outside IT Sligo click here.

Documentation for the online practical rigs is on the “KITE Project Remote Labs” Moodle webpage. Click the “Login as guest” button there.
