Abstract

Telecommuting on every industry where it is possible is becoming an ubiquitous trend. Remote access of local office or education systems is thus become a necessity. Accessing systems remotely requires technical skills for access as well as for setup of the access environment. Not everyone who could benefit from telecommuting is able to take advantage of this opportunity because of the lack of a user friendly environment to access remote lab machines easily. It also the case that software required for work or school projects might be available at the office or at school but not from home. Forcing users to be physically present at the work location if they lack the technical skills to easily access those systems from the location of their preference. It is also the case that trends that make use of virtual machine capabilities are becoming increasingly popular at different industries. Making use of the virtual nature of those systems in a user friendly manner would be tremendously convenient for users and administrators. However, a system that requires minimal technical skill and makes use of a highly interactive and user friendly interface is not available.

WALMAR will consist of a graphical user interface in which a 3-D version of the real lab to be accessed will be generated based on the lab administrator's input. The lab administrator will indicate the size of the lab as well as the location of each of the systems to be added to the virtual rendering. Once all the coordinates a...
