Semi-Automatic Car Anti-Theft Design Using ATMega168 Microcontroller
The design and manufacture of anti-theft systems have become more and more complex due to the rise in complexity of theft in the system. Most of the anti-theft systems available on market, are the alarm types that audibly deter some thieves away but do not prevent one's car from being stolen and also may not be good enough to meet the growing complexity of theft in the country. In this paper, the authors present a simpler and a more efficient car anti-theft system that provides users with improved security by the use of efficient access mechanisms and immobilization systems. Access mechanisms were put in place to request authorization from the user and a hidden button which gives permission to start the car when it is pressed.
