This paper describes how we can use existing mobile technology to track the vehicle. Here the embedded system along with the mobile is used to prevent the vehicle from being stolen and also if the vehicle is stolen then its location can be tracked. Mobile technology is the fastest growing communication mode. In todaypsilas mobile technology we all are acquainted with short message service (SMS). In this paper we have used this service along with the embedded system for fulfillment of our purpose. The technology used in this paper is the combination of hardware (motors, relay and embedded parts) and software (AT commands and program for microcontroller). This paper elaborates how we have used the protocol data unit (PDU) format of SMS with the help of microcontroller to control and track the experimental setup. Our embedded system can be fixed in any vehicle to control and track the vehicle just by sending SMS by authorized persons. This system is cost effective, reliable, user friendly and can be used in remote areas.
