a tracking system is needed. For e. For example in the recent bomb blasts the cars stolen from Navi Mumbai were used for carrying out their missions. which are very precious and we cannot afford to lose them. Other than vehicles. You must have observed the indicators on the railway platforms.g. a few features supporting the application of anti-car theft can be added. For such objects. our project can be used by trekkers to carry it with them and in case of emergency. Thus our project can be used as an anti car theft system which is just one application out of many. If necessary. briefcases etc. The input and output in this tracking system are the SMSes exchanged between the tracking device and the cell phone. Our project can give the current location of the bus.Project Summary There are many valuable entities such as cars. . The Car theft industry is a great support to terrorism. This is how the idea for our project developed. Apart from tracking.: • Automatic Car Lock • Engine Status • Auto-braking and others. the rescue operation will be easier by immediately tracking them. But it’s a fact that such a system is not present in case of the BEST Bus Service in Mumbai. a user-friendly interface can be installed on bus stops through which the process of tracking can be carried out with the help of SMSes.

there are GSM giants such as • Vodafone • Airtel • Idea • Dolphin • BPL • BSNL The ratio of people having GSM mobile phones in India is huge. In this way. our project can be used with a common GSM mobile phone. In India.INTRODUCTION In the market. This is a unique feature that the communication channel used is the GSM network through the land-based cells. . there are many vehicle tracking systems offered by well- established companies such as Godrej. but they are very expensive and they use the Global Positioning System. The biggest disadvantage of this system is that the satellites which are the backbone of this system may at anytime be rendered useless to us as they are a property and control of the US Government. It is observed that there are GSM cell towers in every kilometer in urban areas and in 10 km in rural areas. GSM network is well established and time tested around the globe. we have offered a GSM-based Object Tracking System. Thus. Airtel etc. Hence. GSM coverage is established nationwide.

The user has to send an SMS from his cellular phone to the tracking device to know its current location. GSM based Tracking Unit Communication Channel Cellular Phone GSM Microcontroller module Network Cell Towers . On reception of the enquiring SMS the tracking device generates a reply sms such that it will contain the name of the nearest cell tower.Basic principle and block diagram The Basic principle behind the working of this project is quite simple. This data is sent back to the cell phone through which enquiry was made.

specifications. After multiple field tests. It is divided into a number of sections and these are each covered in separate articles. and services. Throughout the evolution of cellular telecommunications. Overview This tutorial provides an introduction to basic GSM concepts. This presented many problems directly related to compatibility. various systems have been developed without the benefit of standardized specifications.The next task was to decide between a narrow or broadband solution. From 1982 to 1985 discussions were held to decide between building an analog or digital system. networks. the narrowband time division multiple access (TDMA) solution was chosen. a digital system was adopted for GSM. A short history of network evolution is provided in order set the context for understanding GSM. The GSM standard is intended to address these problems. It is estimated that many countries outside of Europe will join the GSM partnership. especially with the development of digital radio technology.Technology used The technology used in this project is the GSM based Communication system. Definition Global system for mobile communication (GSM) is a globally accepted standard for digital cellular communication. GSM is the name of a standardization group established in 1982 to create a common European mobile telephone standard that would formulate specifications for a pan-European mobile cellular radio system operating at 900 MHz. . Network structure The structure of a GSM network The network behind the GSM system seen by the customer is large and complicated in order to provide all of the services which are required. In May 1987.

• The Network and Switching Subsystem (the part of the network most similar to a fixed network). The controller will gather the SMSes received from GSM module. filter them and find the . • The GPRS Core Network (the optional part which allows packet based Internet connections). This is sometimes also just called the core network. • All of the elements in the system combine to produce many GSM services such as voice calls and SMS. • The Base Station Subsystem (the base stations and their controllers). Working The instrument controller is connected to the GSM module through RS232 port and interfaces this module through AT command set.

As GSM module is the core element in this project the positioning of the industry should be near these industries. . However if we plan to manufacture the GSM module then we would need to compromise the positioning of the manufacturing plant in order to balance the manufacturing cost.Location & Infrastructure According to the market survey a lot of companies manufacturing the GSM module are present in the Mumbai and thane regions.
