New technological developments may give students a good excuse for using their phones during class. A team from the Tandon School of Engineering’s Mechatronics program is developing a new integrated platform called Mixed Reality Learning Environment that will allow students to control laboratory testbeds virtually via mobile devices.
Doctoral candidate Jared Frank — who specializes in augmented reality, mixed reality and educational technology — started research on MRLE in 2010 with the help of mechanical and aerospace engineering professor Vikram Kapila.
