—Mobile Devices such as netbooks, laptops, and smart phones have become vital tools for workers to access corporate data remotely. Web services technology enables these mobile devices to integrate seamlessly with other distributed functionalities through well-defined interfaces. This paper explores how crops tracking data for greenhouse crops tracking system (GCTS), collected using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) hardware and associated software, can be delivered to mobile devices such as iPhone, Android, and Windows mobile phones using Web services technology. These devices provide browser capabilities to support HTML 5-based websites providing mobile users with richer web application and improved usability. The design and implementation of GCTS prototype system are discussed in the paper. The result shows that plant tracking data can easily be delivered to mobile devices with different hardware platform and operating system using Web services technology.
