IECAT is a tele-education project where seven universities in the United States and Europe co-operate to set up a virtual international laboratory for control experiments related to aerospace and robotics

An International Teaching Laboratory for Experiments controlled over the Internet, addressing "Mechatronics" (mechanical, electronics and informatics)and "Telematics" (telecommunications and informatics) systems.

Partner Institutions:

  • University of Applied Sciences Fachhochschule Ravensburg-Weingarten, Germany
  • University of Siegen, Germany
  • Helsinki University of Technology, Automation Technology Laboratory, Finland
  • Universidad Carlos III, Madrid, Spain
  • Ohio University, Athens Ohio, USA
  • University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA
  • Utah State University, Logan, Utah, USA

This UC3M system was a tele-education system, which used to learn the systematic knowledge of indoor mobile robotics.
