Abstract

The restrictions associated with the current SARS-Cov-2 pandemic are having a major impact on nearly all human activities and interactions; among these, the didactic and education field certainly has a prominent place. In the case of either complete lockdown or reduced accessibility to facilities and classrooms, the participation of students was severely limited for safety reasons. In particular, laboratory activities, already compromised by a large number of students of some classes, suffered from the restrictions, thus making it difficult to guarantee the possibility of live operating on instruments for the execution of measurements of different quantities of interest. To overcome the considered problem, this article proposes the use of enabling technologies of the Internet of Things and the fourth industrial revolution to allow students to achieve correct and complete training in laboratory activities. To this aim, remotely controlled instruments are used and displayed in augmented reality on consumer devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, or personal computers. The continuous availability of access to the instruments along with the realism in their representation and use ensures a positive and effective involvement of the students.
