Abstract: Programming education has become a mandatory element of many engineering curriculums, covering skills from digitally controlled mechanical processes to intelligent traffic and aviation systems. Many of these disciplines require the interaction with physical devices as programming interfaces. Higher education institutions focusing on quality presence labs with the need for occasional online teaching are thus looking for blended and multimodal solutions in which the physical interaction can be carried over as much as possible into the digital channels. In these solutions, various touch points between the physical and digital worlds should be exploited. This paper contributes such a solution. It introduces a cyber-physical educational support structure called EPOSS aimed at programming ’things’, including robots and derivative stationary and mobile units, that works in flexible lab and online teaching combinations. The system integrates domain-specific scenarios and open data sources for realistic autoprogramming simulations and is made available as open source prototype to foster adoption. The usefulness of the support system is demonstrated with traffic engineering education scenarios.
