Abstract

The ability to track vehicles is useful in many applications including security of personal vehicles, public transportation systems, fleet management and others. Furthermore, the number of vehicles on the road globally is also expected to increase rapidly. Therefore, the development of vehicle tracking system using the Global Positioning System (GPS), Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) modem, General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Google or Open street map respectively is undertaken with the aim of enabling users to locate their vehicles in real time with ease and in a convenient manner. The system will provide users with the capability to track vehicle remotely through the mobile network. This project presents the development of the vehicle tracking system's server and client software. Specifically, the system will utilize GPS to obtain a vehicle's coordinate and transmit it using GSM modem to the user's phone through the mobile network. The system is divided into two parts which are the tracking and monitoring part. The tracking part consist of GPS and an android/IOS mobile phone for navigation purpose. The GPS will provide information about the location of the vehicle. After receiving the location data from the web server, the data is monitored by a personal computer. After processing the data, the location of the vehicle can be viewed on the map.
