The Global Car Tracking System

December 12, 2013 — 2 Comments

Every year about 700,000 vehicles get stolen in US. In fact, a car is stolen every 45 seconds.

We all love our cars and whether it is a roaring Lamborghini or a purring Prius, we are attached to it and wish that it never gets stolen.

I am very attached to my family car and take lots of precaution that I do not park my car in secluded places or double check that I always lock my car when I park it anywhere and always carry my car keys with me. However, I am still worried whether my car is safe. In order to get rid of these genuine worries, I decided to design my own low cost car tracking system.

The following is a list of parts needed to build ‘Athena’ :-

Supplies :
  1. Arduino Uno
  2. Arduino GSM Shield (I have used a SIM900 GSM/GPRS Shield Module)
  3. GPS Module
  4. Adapter Plug for powering the Arduino
  5. 4pcs of LM7805 IC
  6. PCB
  7. Wires
  8. Male Header Pins
  9. Female Header Pins
  10. Project Enclosure
Tools :
  1. Soldering Iron
  2. Solder
  3. Soldering Wax
  4. Drill
  5. Hacksaw
