With the rapid development of digitalization throughout the world, many things that were not possible in the past have become possible now. In addition to the great contributions of digitalization, it carries the data collection, storage and processing stages to a very different dimension, especially for engineering disciplines. Within the engineering disciplines, especially in engineering studies where field studies are abundant, the time lost during the data collection phase, the cost required for field work, the cost required during the data storage phase, and the increased workload in data processing, eliminating all these problems with the use of digitalization in these engineering studies, and accessing data instantly, It offers facilities such as storage and processing. With the help of IOT technology, which is frequently used today, the desired data can be easily obtained with the help of sensors and the collected data can be transmitted to the desired warehouse through software and other technologies easily through data communication. In addition to IOT technology, cloud computing can also provide data storage without using a physical storage for data storage and at low cost. In this study, it is aimed to develop an IOT and cloud-based distance meter device that can be used for field studies. This device is intended to be used in engineering disciplines involving field studies. According to the results of the research, the device can automatically transfer the data obtained with IOT technology to cloud computing via the internet and has successfully performed 24/7 data collection, storage and analysis.
