The rapid advancement of technology has led to a need for more effective, flexible, and remote management of technological systems, as well as their seamless integration into our daily lives. Distributed systems represent an exceptionally important aspect of this technological progress. The integration of these technologies into the field of drilling, more specifically into Drilling Resistance Measurement Systems (DRMS), creates opportunities for innovation and achieves more efficient management. In this broader context, this diploma thesis attempts to combine advanced Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies with the specialization of DRMS, creating a comprehensive distributed system to improve and expand the capabilities of DRMS. By upgrading the architecture of an existing DRMS with an ESP32 microcontroller, we are able to incorporate wireless communication capabilities, allowing remote monitoring and management of the DRMS. This new distributed system allows users to control and organize DRMS from any location in the world, through an easily-accessible database for storing all the collected data and a graphical web interface for monitoring the measurements and controlling the system, thus offering increased flexibility and efficiency. The relational database relies on SQL, while data transfer becomes feasible through a Flask server, SQL-Alchemy, and REST-API. The web interface app was developed using JavaScript. The integration of IoT technology transforms the way DRMS operate and are applied, opening new possibilities for the industry and science.
