The HomeLab kits are mobile, ready to use small test stand packed into a case, which can be connected to PC and operated in computer class, at home or in working place. The aim of the kit is to provide a practical and effective hands-on training. Students may combine various solutions on different levels of complexity and functionality, based on the modules belonging to the kit. The main feature of HomeLab Kit is its mobility – the case is a small and compact box and all modules with necessary tools are seated into that. Taken the current development status into account, the HomeLab Kit offers for example hardware and exercises for 7-segment LED display, LCD (alphanumeric as well as graphical one), sensors (potentiometer, infrared, ultrasonic, etc.), different motors (DC, servo, stepper), as well as a networking module (for Bluetooth, Ethernet and ZigBee), a CAN module and USB for direct connection to PC (for example student home computer). Simple and easy to install software is used to connect main controller to computer. This is particularly important because the student can start practical experiments in school and then continue with self-learning at home or even in workplace.
The HomeLab kit is assisted by a specific software library, enabling easy accessing the modules which is available as Open Source for all users. More experiences users may abandon using it, but for beginners utilizing the library makes it a lot easier to start with micro controller programming
