Vehicle Tracking System Through GPS-GSM Modules
Vehicle Tracking System Through GPS-GSM Modems:The vehicle tracking system is a system, that can be used for tracking the bus, car or any other types of vehicle through global positioning system(GPS). Through this system, the vehicle can be tracked all time through mobile phone or any other computer network system. Various companies or peoples are working on this vehicle tracking global positioning system but their system cost is almost high. Here we are developing a vehicle tracking system through GPS-GSM modem with the help of microcontroller 18F542 belongs to pic family. Which tells the exact location and position of the vehicle through global positioning system.
This system is powered up with the help of transformer, bridge rectifier, and voltage regulator. The max232 is used for the communication purposes between the GPS, GSM modems and pic microcontroller, and this communication is done through the connector DB9. The LCD display is used here for seeing the exact location and data or information of the vehicle. The GSM modem have been also used in this system for getting the information or data about the vehicle through smart mobile phone.

Components List of Vehicle Tracking System through GPS-GSM Modems:
This vehicle tracking system through GPS-GSM has following components,
- Power Supply
- LCD Display
- Max 232
- Microcontroller PIC 18F452
- GPS Modem
- GSM Modem
- DB 9
Power Supply:The vehicle tracking system through GPS-GSM modem is powered up with 220V ac supply. These 220V ac voltages are step down in to 12V ac through the transformer, which works on the principle of mutual induction and consists of one primary and one secondary windings. These ac voltages are inverted into 12V dc through the bridge rectifier which consists of 4 diodes. Because the microcontroller, LCD display and max 232 operated on 5V dc therefore these voltages are regulated into 5V dc through the voltage regulator. The LM7805 voltage regulator have been used in this vehicle tracking system through GPS-GSM.
LCD Display: In this vehicle tracking system through GPS-GSM modem, a 16*2 LCD display have been used for displaying the vehicle data or information. This LCD display is powered up with LM 7805 voltage regulator and is interfaced with the pic 18F452 microcontroller which gives the data or information to the LCD display.
