COMPUTER LABORATORY FOR THE STUDY OF PROPAGATION PHENOMENA IN INFORMATION TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS USING MOBILE DEVICES

Computer simulation is essential in the everyday professional activity of scientists and engineers. Computer models permit to explore the behavior of a system under study for broad ranges of parameter values and are of great value for understanding the associated physical phenomena. This feature makes numerical computation a cornerstone of research in communications technologies. Similarly, the analysis, design and optimization of complex transmission systems, in practice, typically rely heavily on numerical simulation. Therefore, the students of the scientific and engineering disciplines must be trained in the simulation of systems and in the use of computer models to study complex problems in signal transmission.
Web-based computer laboratories [1-3] are particularly appealing due to the flexibility they provide, not only in terms of the computer hardware required, but also in the way students can organize their time and space to do their assignments. In this presentation, an educational experience resulting from the porting of previous simulation laboratory based on a Java simulation tool to mobile devices using Android will be described.
