Abstract | Full Text

Nowadays it has been clearly observed that machines are more and more communicating with each other. An M2M (Machine to Machine) communication application developed for any sector needs an M2M platfrom in order to interact with the user. The aim of an M2M platform is to fulfill the functions such as collecting data, tracking the data, data management, and reporting and analysis. M2M platforms are mostly developed as web-based systems, and the user is aimed to connect in any environment to the platform. In this direction, some of the M2M platforms are released as both desktop and mobile applications. However, in such cases, there is a need to develop different interface designs for mobile operating systems and screen size. This issue makes the interface developers’ job harder. In this study, the M2M platform is designed with a responsive interface rather than developing different M2M interface designs for every mobile operating system and screen size. Thanks to this responsive design, it is no longer needed to develop different interfaces for desktop, web, and mobile systems. The M2M platform interface developed in this study can be used comfortably with the dynamic feature shaped according to the desktop and mobile screen sizes through web browsers.
