Abid khan, Ravi Mishra. "GPS – GSM Based Tracking System". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V3(2):161-164 Mar-Apr 2012. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group


This proposed work is an attempt to design a tracking unit that uses the global positioning system to determine the precise location of a object, person or other asset to which it is attached and using GSM modem this information can be transmit to remote user. It can provide tele - monitoring system for inter - cities transportation vehicles such as taxis and buses. This system contains single - board embedded system that is equipped with GPS and GSM modems along with ARM processor that is installed in the vehicle. During object motion, its location can be reported by SMS message. A software package is developed to read, process, analyze and store the incoming SMS messages. The use of GSM and GPS technologies allow s the system to track object and provides the most up - to - date information about ongoing trips. If a password like SMS is sent by the owner, it automatically stops the vehicle or we can use it for different other work, it can provide real time control. This system finds its applic a tion in real time traffic surveillance. It could be used as a valuable tool for real time traveler. The current system can be able to provide monitoring process from anywhere . The purpose of this system is to design and integrate a new system which is integrated with GPS - GSM to provide fo l lowing feature: a) Location information, b) Real time tracking using SMS, c) track bus driver activity d) Communication is instantaneous therefore we can receive running report quickly. It is com pletely integrated so that once it is implemented in all vehicles, then it is easy to track vehicles any time .
