Advanced technologies have significant impacts on every aspect of education, where digital connectivity is the foundation to support the way people learn. Current Internet and pre-5G cellular communication networks can deliver visual and auditory data, which enable distance/virtual learning. However, remote physical interaction between students and learning facilities, which is an essential part of a new education paradigm is still missing. The 5G cellular network with impressive latency and reliability performance would be a game changer by enabling students to attend remote physical learning environment. In this paper, we introduce our prototype of real-time remote laboratory which enables students to attend remote physical environment and have interactive laboratory session with help of robotics.
