With increasing need for better vehicle security, there is now a strong emphasis on developing measures to prevent theft or misuse of vehicles. Of the measures that have been developed so far, the usage of a tracking system has by far been the most popular and efficient. Vehicle tracking system aims at determining the location of a vehicle using different methods like GPS and GSM systems operating through satellites and ground based stations. Vehicle information like location details, speed, distance travelled etc. can be viewed on a Google map with the help of APIs via internet.
