There are a variety of areas wherein a need exists for a system capable of identifying and tracking the geographic location of a remote valuable object. One such valuable object which requires constant surveillance is car. In order to alert the car owner immediately regarding theft of the car by means of a portable remote receiver, the authors have come up with an Event Tracking System, which they have discussed in this paper. This system consists of Event Detection Module, Global Positioning System (GPS), Asset Tag and Wireless Network Interface. The Event Detection Module consists of Event detection sensor and Event detection logic. GPS and Asset Tag together determine the location of the car.
