Online and Pocket Labs (OaPL) are web-based and miniaturized measurement and control environments independent of time and place and are used for remote diagnosis, remote monitoring and experimental setups. Typical applications are in modern forms of teaching, but also in smart city applications, remote diagnosis, etc. Virtual and Augmented Reality will also be integrated into the concept as part of a future-oriented engineering training. OaPL applications are often associated with elements of machine learning. The combination of all laboratory forms forms forms the basis for new working practices in industry.
