Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to describe a practical model for tracking mobile vehicles based on Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM). We shall use GSM modem which is built-in in both transmitter and receiver section to receive co-ordinates from the GPS in the vehicle. The device will collect position to supervised center by the SMS (Short Message Service) or GPRS (General Package Radio Service) and can be located in the Google Earth and hence the current position of the vehicle can be known. GSM model will be controlled by a 32-bit ARM7LPC2148.
