QLabs Robotics is a collection of virtual laboratory activities that supplement traditional or online robotics courses. The virtual hardware labs are based on Quanser QArm robotic manipulator and QBot 2e mobile ground robot. The virtual twins of these robots are fully instrumented and dynamically accurate, allowing users to measure simulated sensors, including video and depth data, interact with virtual environments, and work with the same code created for the “real” robots. With QLabs Robotics, you can combine physical and virtual plants to enrich your lectures and in-lab activities and increases engagement and students’ learning outcomes in class-based or online courses.

  • High-fidelity, academically appropriate experiences
  • Fully instrumented, dynamically accurate twins of Quanser QBot 2e and QArm
  • Available on Windows
  • Comprehensive curriculum mapped to popular robotics textbooks
  • Instructor resources and tools to manage access and monitor students’progress
  • Flexible 12-month subscription
