Abstract

This paper presents automobile tracking system with audio surveillance using GPS and GSM Module to provide an alternative solution to security challenges experienced by car owner, and to develop a system that can track the location of vehicles. We make use of Microcontroller Unit, GPS, and GSM unit. The design is an embedded application, which will continuously monitor a moving Vehicle and report the status of the Vehicle on demand. The PIC18F452 microcontroller is interfaced serially to a GSM Modem and GPS Receiver. A GSM modem is used to send the position (Latitude and Longitude) of the vehicle from a remote place. The GPS modem will continuously give the information indicating the position of the vehicle. The GPS modem gives many parameters as the output, but only the data coming out is read and sent to the user's phone number. We use RS-232 protocol for serial communication between the modems and the microcontroller. A serial driver IC is used for converting TTL voltage levels to RS-232 voltage levels. When the request by user is sent to the number in the modem, the system automatically sends a return reply to the mobile phone indicating the position of the vehicle in terms of latitude and longitude from this information we can track our vehicles.
