VEHICLE MONITORING SYSTEM

A vehicle monitoring system combines the installation of an electronic


device in a vehicle with purpose designed computer software to enable the
owner to track the vehicles location,collecting data in the from the field and
deliver it to the base of operation.
Through this project we introduce such a vehicle monitoring system
using various components like microcontroller, GSM,GPS..etc. The system
uses GPS, to find the location of the monitored or tracked vehicle and uses
satellite or radio system to send the coordinate and the location data to
monitor device. At the monitoring device various softwares are used to plot
the vehicle on a map. In this way the vehicles owner is able to track the
vehicle on real-time basis. The hardware of this system is fitted on to the
vehicle in such a manner that it is not visible to anyone who is inside or
outside of the vehicle. Thus it is used as a covert unit which continuously or
by an interrupt to the system, sends the location data to the monitoring unit.
In case if the vehicle is stolen the owner could send signal to the vehicle so
that the moving vehicle comes to an halt. When signal is send to the vehicle
the GSM module in the vehicle will receive the signal send by the owner and
this signal is given to the microcontroller. The microcontroller will control
the working of the spark plug of the vehicle through the relay connected in
between the spark plug and microcontroller. Then by using the GPS module
the exact position of the vehicle can be obtained so that the owner could
easily recover his stolen vehicle.
