This work aims at experimenting with the development of distributed measurement systems over the Internet using industry-based software technologies. Major goals are modular design and an exploitation of heterogeneous computing platforms for supporting open and dynamically configurable distributed measurement systems. A novel measurement laboratory, Jini-Lab, based on Internet and Jini services is proposed and experimented. The key features of Jini allowing the development of the distributed measurement laboratory are presented. The measurement experiments concern the monitoring of the power network characteristics. Attention is focused on the two services: the power network analyser service and the monitoring service.
