Millions of passengers commute between homes and their workplace every day in our country. Safe transportation of passengers, mat it be corporate employees or school children, has been a critical issue as it is observed that vehicles they travel in are often difficult to track. This project finds a solution to this problem by developing a tracking system that can monitor these vehicles by making use of inexpensive hardware and software components. This system monitors and tracks the vehicle using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), GSM (Global system for mobile communication), and GPS (Global Positioning System) to ensure the safer commute. The process requires minimum human intervention. Apart from swiping the RFID tag, passengers need not perform any additional tasks. In case of school children, this system can also be used to take the attendance of students.
