The agriculture sector has existed for thousands of years, however in the last period it has been innovating with solutions that improve this practice thanks to the advancement of technology and the digitization of machines in all industrial sectors. In this context, a thesis work is proposed in collaboration with the company WiRail SRL, whose objective is to design and develop functionalities within a cloud-based web application, which improve and help users to manage agricultural production through real-time monitoring of their machines. The monitoring system is composed of three parts, a REST API server, a data receiver server and a front-end, based on current and optimal information technologies. Thus, using this architecture it is shown how the new developments focused on improving the user experience and adding value to the use of the application were carried out. In particular, it is illustrated how the concept of activities together with the concept of Smart farming can significantly improve the management of agricultural machines, integrating them with algorithms and visual monitoring tools. Furthermore, the validation of design decisions using global standards of application development is shown. Finally, possible future continuations of the project are discussed, with adaptations for other platforms and the implementation of additional functionalities.
