Abstract: This project discusses and Implements in detail the purpose, designing and functioning of a automatic vehicle tracking and traffic accident monitoring system in public transport. The number of vehicles on the road globally is expected to increase rapidly. Therefore, the development of vehicle tracking system using the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) modem is undertaken with the aim of enabling to minimize traffic accident and users to locate their vehicles and to keep the users from driving over speed with ease and in a convenient manner. The system will provide to the administrator with the capability to track vehicle remotely through the mobile network and at what speed the vehicle is running. Specifically, implementation of this project more focus on the server based vehicle tracking in public transport and company vehicles in case of traffic accident prevention. The system will generate the location of the vehicle and at what speed the vehicle is moving. The system will utilize GPS to obtain a vehicle’s coordinate and the time and transmit it using GSM modem to the central server through the mobile network by SMS. The main hardware components of the system are Robomart GPS receiver module, Robomart GSM module and AVR Atmega16 microcontroller. The developed vehicle tracking system demonstrates the feasibility of near real-time tracking of vehicles and improved customizability, global operability and costly when compared to existing solutions.
