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’ :-
- Arduino Uno
- Arduino GSM Shield (I have used a SIM900 GSM/GPRS Shield Module)
- GPS Module
- Adapter Plug for powering the Arduino
- 4pcs of LM7805 IC
- Male Header Pins
- Female Header Pins
- Project Enclosure
- Soldering Iron
- Soldering Wax
