Abstract: The process of tracking an object on the Earth’s surface has been a much needed demand since the development of satellites. With the advent of GPS it has became an easier process. The combination of GPS, GSM and Arduino can be effectively utilised to aid in efficient tracking of an object. The location coordinates of the object such as latitude and longitude are sent to a preset mobile number in SMS format. A simple click will redirect to Google maps and yield the exact location. Continuous position information of an object for a particular interval of time gives the trajectory of the object over time. Thus, the particular object of interest can be tracked.
Keywords: GPS, Tracking System, GSM, Arduino, NMEA
