The monitoring of defense vehicles is very much important, because these vehicles are costly at the same time very much important. This paper provides a real time solution for such vehicles and also an effective authentication for the driver to use the vehicle assigned to him by controlling the ignition of the engine. The authentication is provided by using the RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, in which the RFID tag has to be placed on the RFID reader which continuously reads the data and authenticates. In case of usage of wrong tag, the ignition system will be turned OFF using relays. The communication link is established by using the GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) module through which the messages can be sent and received. The tracking of vehicle is made possible using the GPS (Global Positioning System) technology which sends the exact co-ordinates of vehicle position. The received co-ordinates are extracted and the place is identified on the map using the front end. The GPS fencing is made in which the position of vehicle whether inside or outside the territory can be notified. The speed monitoring is also established using the GPS packet extracted. The speed limit can be set dynamically from the headquarters and on crossing these speed limits the warning will be given and engine will be turned off after a certain delay. The engine heat is also monitored using the temperature sensor and overheat condition will be reported to the headquarters and also engine will be turned off and allowed to cool down. The database of driver is maintained at the headquarters to evaluate the performance of driver.
