Android Device Farm has been created using the Open STF in which three different mobile devices connected in USB Hub and controlled using the web browser.
STF (Smartphone Test Farm) is a web application for debugging smartphones, smartwatches and other gadgets remotely, from the comfort of your web browser. You can use this device farm to perform testing in your organisation. Instead of taking the physical devices by the developers or testers, they can utilise this STF(Smartphone Test Farm) and start development/testing using the web browser in their machines.
Three different Motorola smartphones such as Moto G5 Plus, Moto E 2nd Gen and Moto E3 Power connected in the Mac OS X using the USB HUB with four ports.

Accessed all the Android devices using the web browser available in another Windows x64 machine. Please note both the machines connected in the same network. If you want to connect from different network, you should opt for public IP before hosting the STF application. IP Address:7100 is used to access the connected physical device in another machine.
