GSM GPS based vehicle theft control system

In recent years,vehicles thefts are increasing at an alarming rate around the world. People have started to use the theft control systems installed in their vehicles.The commercially available anti theft vehicular systems are very expensive. This project deals with the design and development of theft control system for automobile, which is being used to prevent/control the theft of a vehicle.The developed system makes use of an embedded system based on GSM/ GPS technology. The designed and developed system is installed in the vehicle. An interfacing GSM MODEM(SIMCOM's SIM 300 GSM operates in the 900MHz and 1.8GHz bands GSM supports data transfer speed of up to 9.6 kbps) and the GPS which are connected to the microcontroller, which in turn, connected to the engine.
         Once the vehicle is being stolen, the information is being used by the vehicle owner for further processing. Where by sitting at a remote place, a particular number is being dialed by them to interfacing GSM MODEM that is with the hardware kit which is installed in the vehicle.By reading the signals received by the mobile, the engine is locked automatically and sends the SMS to the dialed no stating the exact position using GPS modem. Again it will come to the normal condition only after entering a secured password by the owner of the vehicle.
      The main concept in this design is introducing the GSM and GPS technologies into the embedded system. The designed unit is very simple and low cost. The entire designed unit is on a single chip. When the vehicle is stolen, owner will give a call to the kit placed in vehicle engine automatically stop which is indicated by the DC motor in turn  sends the SMS to the authorized person showing the exact location using GPS. The car will unlock until the password is entered is entered with help of 4x3 key pad interfaced to LPC 2148 by the authorized person.
