A RFID & GSM Based Vehicle Tracking System combine the installation of an electronic device in a vehicle, with purpose-designed computer software to track the vehicle's location. In vehicle tracking systems we use Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) technology for locating the vehicle. Vehicle information can be viewed on electronic maps which are positioned at control room. The control circuit is placed inside the garbage vehicle. Whenever the vehicle will reach in front of the respective trash bin the RFID reader will read the address from the respective trash bin, the microcontroller matches the RFID no. with the existing record and sends the vehicle position details to the control room via GSM module. The module will receive the message through GSM in the control room. This message will then be transferred to the LCD placed in control room through the serial port. In addition to the details of vehicle position, this system will also take care of whether the municipal staff has faithfully collected the garbage or not after reaching there.For this process we will make use of different type of sensors like IR PHOTO and ULTRASONIC sensors.
