Abstract

Automobiles are necessary for the movement of goods from one location to another. Consumers may face several problems as a result of delays in the delivery of goods. This delay may be due to drivers choosing incorrect or longer routes when delivering. To avoid these challenges, the Global Positioning System (GPS) is increasingly being used for management of vehicle fleets, recovery of stolen vehicles, mapping and surveillance. This paper outlines the design and implementation of a real time GPS tracker system using Arduino. When a user makes a call on the number that is registered on the GPS-GSM shield attached to Arduino, the user receives the location coordinates with data being stored continuously on an SD card simultaneously. This proposal has significant application for vehicle security, salesman tracking and private drivers.
