About the FPGA Vision Remote Lab

The remote-lab is a project of Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg.

24/7 availability due to independent systems at different locations; will be released end of 2018.

We provide long-time availability. We use the system for our local lectures and perform regular maintenance. If you plan to use our remote-lab for your lecture you can contact us. As a minimum the remote-lab will be available until 2023.
