vehicles became important in human life. This air pollution mainly caused by vehicles and industries. This paper mainly concentrated on controlling the air pollution from vehicles by using semi-conductor gas sensor for detecting the emission level from vehicles. If the vehicle do not get service regularly, then pollution level higher than standard emission level. In this paper, smoke sensor has been used to detect carbon monoxide from vehicles. Smoke sensor senses the pollution level from vehicles. If pollution level is recorded beyond the standard values from government, then microcontroller alerts the buzzer and displays pollution level on LCD. Microcontroller also sends pollution level to service centre through text message by GSM module. At the same time, activate the timer that indicates vehicle will be stopped after some time. During this time, GPS finds the location of vehicle in terms of latitude and longitude values and displays on LCD. GSM send GPS values to service centre through text message. When timer expires, vehicle will be stopped due to the fuel supply to engine get stop by relay circuit is controlled by microcontroller. Based on GPS values, service centre can trace and service the vehicle. The proposed system must be registered with service centre by sending text message. This paper will benefit to the society and help in controlling the air pollution.
