Taiyo MAEDA, Yoshimasa KADOOKA, Yoshio TAGO
The desk side laboratory (DSLab) which makes it possible for users who are in far places geographically to do research and development through internet on their web browsers, has been developed only using commodity products.@It has easy-to-use user interface. It has been shown that DSLab is useful for collaborative research of particle image velocimetry in fluid dynamics, collaborative system development, and e-Learning.@It is emphasized that, when used with digital equipment such as digital microscope, DSLab has a wide range of applications. It is expected that both of time and of travel cost needed in research and development are reduced largely.
