The aim of the pilot project MARVEL is to implement and evaluate learning environments for Mechatronics in Vocational Training, that allow students ubiquitous online-access to physical workshops and laboratory facilities from remote places. The project will cover concepts that merge real and virtual as well as local and remote worlds in real time. This will support teleactions and remote laboratory experiments in mixed reality work environments.

MARVEL will produce evaluated working examples of remotely accessible practical environments together with supporting e-learning and student assessment material for the following application fields: robotics, modular production systems and process control. This includes the creation of actual demonstration models (learning scenarios and environments) in partner institutions and industry for evaluation purposes.
