What is CrossLab? CrossLab aims to build new, flexible remote labs based on three pillars:

  • cross-types: Different types of elements - such as remote labs or simulations - should be compatible.
  • cross-elements: Different parts of experiments - such as controllers, models, or user interface - should be freely combineable. For this, new laboratory protocols need to be developed[^1].
  • cross-disciplines: Since interdisciplinary work gets more and more important, this is one focus of the project.
  • cross-universities: This allows universities to get access to more different hardware as well increase redundancy by sharing.
