—Security, especially theft security of vehicle in common parking places has become a matter of concern. An efficient automotive security system is implemented for anti-theft using an embedded system integrated with Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM).This proposed work is an attempt to design and develop a smart anti-theft system that uses GPS and GSM system to prevent theft and to determine the exact location of vehicle. The system contains GPS module, GSM modem, Infrared sensors, DTMF decoder IC MT8870DE, 8051 microcontroller, relay switch, vibration sensor, paint spray and high voltage mesh. GPS system track the current location of vehicle, there are two types of tracking used one is online tracking and other is offline tracking. GSM system is also installed in the vehicle for sending the information to the owner of the vehicle because GPS system can only receive the vehicle location information from satellites. In case of accident this system automatically sends the message for help to ones relatives. The preventive measures like engine ignition cutoff, fuel supply cutoff, electric shock system (installed on steering wheel) and paint spray system are installed in the vehicle which is controlled using user or owner GSM mobile. The owner can lock or unlock his/her vehicle with the help of SMS. This complete system is designed taking in consideration the low range vehicles to provide them extreme security.
