Last year at V-VSS 2021, VPixx Technologies introduced a new software tool under development: LabMaestro Pack&Go, a solution for conducting MATLAB/Psychtoolbox experiments online.

In this virtual satellite talk, VPixx Staff Scientists will present the current status of Pack&Go and demonstrate its use. We will show how to upload local MATLAB experiments, recruit participants and send invitations, collect and store data, and download results files and experiment metadata. Results from an online MATLAB experiment conducted during the in-person VSS 2022 conference will be presented as an example. This talk will also cover specific concerns related to end-to-end latency, network timing and data security.
