The development of satellite communication technology is easy to identify the vehicle locations. Vehicle tracking systems have brought this technology to the day-to-day life of the common person. Today GPS used in cars ambulances; fleets and police vehicles are common sights on the roads of developed countries. All the existing technology supports in tracking the vehicle place and status. Currently, majority of people owns a vehicle. Theft cases however kept happening in parking area and also in some other insecurity places. The safety of the vehicle in public areas is the main concern to the car owner. So an advanced system that makes use of an embedded system based on GSM technology is suggested to overcome the problem. This system is installed in the vehicle. The GPS/GSM based system is one of the most important systems, which integrate both GSM and GPS technologies. It is necessary due to the many of applications of both GSM and GPS systems and the wide usage of them by millions of people throughout the world. This system designed for users in land construction and transport business, to provide real-time information such as location, speed and expected arrival time of a moving vehicle in a concise and easy-to-read format. This project deals with an SMS (Short Message Service) enabled vehicle tracking system. The heart of this project lies with the use of a GPS + GSM modem which is installed in the vehicle and is in charge of tracking the vehicle and sending the coordinates to the GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) modem. The GSM modem in the control center receives the coordinates via SMS and updates the main database which contains all the whereabouts of all the vehicles at specified times. This thesis explores the foundation of GPS, GSM, and all the software related in the project; and the use of their concepts to produce a vehicle tracking and locking system which is cheaper and more effective than most commercial car tracking features in the market today.
