Based on the BW-eLabs platform, the goal of the NETLABS is the development of a ubiquitous software portal, allowing researchers to move backward and forward between interlinked experimental superstructures and simulations in a 3D knowledge space. Robotics - as one of the most important key technologies of the 21st century - is in a special need of ``virtual infrastructure support'' because of its cost-intenseness. The environments where these systems can be examined in both a simulative as well as a realistic manner are manifold. Due to the accessibility of the different robotics applications, new trials can be tested faster and at a reasonable price. In NetLabs, a role- and rights-based model is developed, allowing access to experiments or measured data. The necessary components are integrated in the 3D Wonderland engine.
